In this interview conducted via Zoom, Jane (Brodie) Pellegrino, class of 1968, remembers her time at Salve Regina, including the leadership of the Sisters of Mercy who taught, served "in loco parentis" and enforced (or overlooked) rules regarding dress and male visitors. Jane recalls experiences with faculty such as professor of chemistry Asciano DiPippo and Sister Mary Philemon. She also reminisced about the Sisters Mary Eloise and Mary Jean Tobin, who in addition to teaching, were dorm mothers. Jane recalls major events that happened during her time at Salve and shortly after, such as the assasinations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy, the Czech Spring and the Chicago Convention, and hypothesized about the difference in cultural attitudes between her class, graduating in May 1968, and those who came in the years after.
