Words of Otelia Cromwell Captured in Niece's Book

My Mothering Aunt Avaialbe at Grécourt Bookshop

An illustration of Otelia Cromwell, Class of 1900, looking after Adelaide Cromwell ’40, adorns the cover of My Mothering Aunt.

Adelaide Cromwell ’40 will always remember her beloved aunt as Aunt Tee, the pet name she had for her since childhood. Adelaide, now 90, recalls her favorite of four aunts, Otelia Cromwell, as a mother figure in a book published this year by Smith College.

My Mothering Aunt: Otelia Cromwell is a remembrance of the lifelong relationship between Adelaide and Otelia Cromwell, class of 1900, the first African-American graduate of the college.
