Ginette and Carl Adamson

Ginette and Carl Adamson:  When I became Dean of Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Wichita State University in 1969, two relatively new members of the faculty were Ginette, in French (she’s also an artist) and Carl, in German.  Ginette, originally from Haiti writes about Francophone Women Writers. Both were educational entrepreneurs and brought creative programs to the College.  After Peter’s death, Ginette was a charter member of Magelli’s Faculty Fitness Club—we jogged every morning at 5 a.m. in Henry Levitt Arena.  Ginette being the younger, tried to intimidate me with her speed and attempted to claim the outer lane on the track—I’ll let her tell me my response as I heard this voice in French, proclaim, “track, track”.  I told her I wasn’t Dean until 8 a.m. and I was not moving over.  They now live in Strasburg, France.
