Biographical / Historical

Doctor Lynne Gelber, born in Philidelphia in 1939, was a French professor at Skidmore beginning in 1966. During her time here, she was responsible for coordinating the college's first study-abroad program for students; which is still known as one of the best of its kind. Besides foreign relations, Gelber was also involved in a majority of the more prominant committees on campus, facilitating strong faculty-administration communication. She was involved in making Skidmore coed and rode out the tumultuous Vietnam-era as well, finally retiring in 2002 to pursue her own research and interests.
