    • COMMENTS ON HERTHA'S PAINTING

      Inspired by a lifetime of travel, Hertha Flack's recent landscape paintings are rendered in bold, rich color. Her work is most often in the impressionistic style, occasionally tending toward abstract. Ms. Flack, who has painted for over 25 years and has had several successful one-person shows, has exhibited in numerous states and is a member of several art organizations. She now works mainly in acrylics.

      She has studied with Carole Barnes, Carrie Brown, Maxine Masterfield and Mary Todd Beam. Her home and studio are in Tryon, North Carolina.
    • June 1934, Hertha graduated from High School in Mt. Vernon. She had applied for admission to Swarthmore College.
    • SWARTHMORE SCHOLARSHIPS
      The Flack Achievement Award, established by Jim and Hertha Flack in 1985, is given to a deserving student who, during his or her first 2 years at the College, has demonstrated leadership potential and a good record of achievement in both academic and extracurricular activities.

      The Flack Faculty Award is given for excellence in teaching and promise in scholarly activity by a member of the Swarthmore faculty to help meet the expenses of a full year of leave devoted to research and self-improvement. This award acknowledges the particularly strong link that exists at Swarthmore between teaching and original scholarly work. The president gives the award based upon the recommendation of the provost and the candidate?s academic department. This award is made possible by an endowment established by James M. Flack and Hertha Eisenmenger Flack ?38.
    • SWARTHMORE 1938 YEARBOOK - HALCYON

      HERTHA EMMA EISENMENGER
      Lab haunting Hertha Emma Eisenmenger is the foremost product of Third East's ability to rouse sleepy heads, have its vertebrae counted, send forth a member with the right date near the right time all on a Saturday night. In return, the corridor may be favored with a wordless rendition of a new song, a constant supply of food, the thrill of having a night picture snapped from a rainy window sill. Appreciative of her roommate's kindness in explaining jokes and her leniency in the matter of lima beans, Hertha plays favorites, breaking a rule by remembering the roommate's name.
