"I am very pleased that the department and the College has seen fit to put me in Lucyle Hook's shoes, as it were, because she had a formidable presence while she was at Barnard," says Kim Hall, professor of English. Hall recently assumed the newly endowed Lucyle Hook Chair in honor of this beloved English faculty member, a scholar of seventeenth-century literature and drama who passed away in 2003 at the age of 102. "I feel a kind of kinship [with her]," says Hall, citing Hook's scholarly interests as well as her love of international travel and dedication to women's issues.
