Dr. Mary Edsall Choquette passed away in February. Choquette taught in the School of Library and Information Science at The Catholic University of America, the Palmer School at Long Island University, and most recently at the iSchool at the University of Maryland. She also made contributions to dance heritage as consulting archivist at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, whose archives are some of the most important in the memory of modern dance. Nancy Cricco, a longtime member of SAA and university archivist at New York University (NYU), passed away in April. Cricco earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees at NYU and became the university archivist there in 1992. During her time at NYU, she helped to carve out gallery space for historical exhibitions, digitize the archives, started an ambitious oral history project, and acted as an influential mentor to many graduate students. She also oversaw the Margaret Sanger Papers Project and coauthored the book The Miracle on Washington Square.
