College Trustee and devoted alumna Allie (Darling) Lowe '37 died this weekend in her home in Whittier. Lowe graduated from Whittier with a degree in American History and was a member of the Thalian Society. As an alumna, she established an endowed scholarship in honor of her parents Ida and John Darling and recently worked to establish a position in religious and spiritual life within the Student Life division. She had a wide-ranging career as a teacher, researcher, and consultant; and she was an avid volunteer for such organizations as the American Red Cross, League of Women Voters, and the YWCA. The family is planning a service in the Whittier's Memorial Chapel in May.
