Happy 100th Birthday, Geraldine McCullough


Dec. 1, 2017

Today would be Geraldine McCullough's 100th birthday and we remember the impact she had on her students, Dominican (then Rosary) and the community. Geraldine joined the faculty of Rosary College in 1968 and retired in 1988. She served as chair of the Art Department for the last 12 years of that span.

We are planning to remember Ms. McCullough in a special way in March during Women's History Month. Details in the new year.

"She was a soft-spoken gifted artist and teacher who truly cared for her students with encouraging words and a great attitude" - Genette De Vry Tracy ’69

"Definitely the leather pants and high heeled boots! We had great conversations in her office. She also sent my best friend and me to Paris on a full scholarship through the Art Institute. She truly cared about us! The last time I saw her she had an art show about 26-27 years ago. What fun to see her face when I came in the room. Sister Milla Derby and she were inseparable, they are probably best friends upstairs, I’m sure of it!" - Mary S. Findley-Horn ’86

"I remember her as a jazzy lady" - Andrea Alonzo ’84

"Ms. McCullough was my favorite art professor. I learned many skills from her. She was very talented and I think about her often whenever I create my designs." - Maxine Scott‎ ’79, MAT ’02
