Long Island University invited Deb Weir to assist them in fulfilling the final request of deceased Pen Woman, Marie Schwartz: a book memorializing this philanthropist’s life. Deb is extremely grateful to Karen Heffner for digitizing our history and uploading it in a searchable form. Deb was able to collect about 30 items from our Google cloud for this book. She also submitted many personal documents about Marie including this photograph of Marie with Deb and Catherine Stahl on Halloween in 2017. The coordinator at Long Island University called these items "a treasure trove of photos and articles.”
