Fall 2016 Chronicle

Feature: Women in Finance

Peddie women are reaching great heights in the finance industry. Alumnae like Allison Davi '02 (pictured above) have made it to the upper echelons of the finance world and are showing everyone that success in finance has nothing to do with gender and everything to do with hard work, dedication and perseverance.

Feature: Camera Obscura

Science faculty member Nick Guilbert experimented with camera obscura techniques during an arts retreat at the Vermont Studio Center. In the above video "If I were Vermeer," Guilbert summarizes his work at the studio and addresses the still-controversial question as to whether (or how) some of the great Renaissance painters used optical aids in the creation of their master works. And, would a physicist like himself be helped or not in the making of a drawing or painting by the optics available in the 16th and 17th centuries. Read more about Guilbert's retreat in this issue of the Chronicle.
