Dickinson Magazine features the story of Joyce Rinehart Anderson '45, "the first or second female designer in the American craft movement."  After studying language at Dickinson, Joyce moved back to her hometown of Morristown, New Jersey, and married high school sweetheart Edgar.  At their property on which they have lived, worked, and have preserved for sixty years, Joyce built furniture, decorations, and the house itself, cultivating special skill in lathing.  Today she is recognized as one of the "foremost American craft artists."
