In Memoriam: Anna Carol Dudley ’52

It is with great sadness that I report that Anna Carol Dudley ’52 passed away on May 27, 2021 in Oakland, CA. Anna Carol was an Oberlin Shansi Rep in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India from 1952 to 1954, and her future husband Richard Dudley ’51 was a Shansi Rep in South India as well. Anna Carol and Richard’s son Shannon Dudley ’82 was a Shansi Fellow as well, also in Madurai at American College/SCILET.
