After college she taught at several schools, got a masters at the Catholic University of America in Washington, and then came to Brockport. Over the years she got her PhD, and became a professor in our education department. In 1963 she was married to Clark Whited, a professor of physical education at Brockport. She retired in 1985 and was very active in that phase of her life in Brockport alumni and development affairs, a true friend not just of the library, but the college. In this post Fran is shown seated at left with some of her campus school colleagues in the 1950s. (Note: if you click on the photo you can see a larger image.)
