Scripps College Fine Arts Foundation. Minche and I went to the luncheon meeting of the Fine Arts Foundation where we were able to purchase a half dozen paintings from the estate of Corinne Gallman, who served as president of the foundation for nine years over about four decades. Paul's mother Helen served as a co-president with Corinne in the 1990s and Paul served as co-president with her 2008-2010. She died this past January in her home in Claremont. Overall, the Foundation has donated more than $11,000 to the Fine Arts Foundation scholarship fund with proceeds from Corinne's art collection. And we revere Corinne's fine taste and rollicking good humor. One of the grande dames of Claremont.
