Happy birthday, Jill Ker Conway.
Jill Ker Conway, the first female president of Smith College, turns 78 tomorrow. Best known for her memoirs The Road from Coorain and True North, Conway also wrote Overnight Float (2000) with Elizabeth T. Kennan (former president of Mt. Holyoke College) under the pseudonym Clare Munnings. Overnight Float features a college chaplain pursuing the killer of a college official.
