On Dec. 8, nearly 200 friends of Reid Hall, including current and former students, professors and staff, gathered to celebrate this golden anniversary. Golden Jubilee medals were presented to director emerita Danielle Haase-Dubosc and to administrative director Brunhilde Biebuyck. There will also be a celebration in New York City in January 2015, which will include the presentation of a compilation of essays and photos submitted by Reid Hall alumni, some of whom never left Paris, some of whom met their husbands and wives as part of their program, all of whom had their lives touched in some way by their time at Reid Hall.
This year, Reid Hall is celebrating a very special milestone: 50 years with Columbia University, after Helen Rogers Reid bequeathed to Columbia the property that had meant so much to her family and to the international community in Paris. Reid Hall became Columbia Global Centers | Europe in 2010.
