To be eligible, a person must have served at least 10 years as a regular full-time faculty member at Memorial and must have held the rank of professor upon retirement.

Diane shaped the Department of Folklore in numerous significant ways prior to her retirement in 2022. We are very pleased that she was accorded the well-deserved title of Professor Emerita. Congratulations!
