Each Spring, Dickinson's English department invites two alumni-majors to share their life and work experience with current students, and to reacquaint them with programs in the department and at the college. The program is named in honor of Eleanor Cogan on the occasion of her 90th birthday in 1999. Dr. Cogan was honored at commencement in May 1999 for her extraordinary commitment to lifelong learning and to the study of English Literature. Eleanor received an honorary doctor of lettres during Commencement in May 2003. She received her master's degree in Chemistry from the University of Illinois in 1932; after a career in science and as a homemaker and mother, she returned to Dickinson as a continuing education student in the fall of 1979. Since then she has taken 52 courses at Dickinson, 32 in the English department. In the summer of 1998, Mrs. Cogan attended the six-week summer immersion program in London leading a walking-tour of St. Paul's.
