As the newly elected president of the Scudder Association Foundation, I wanted to share my thoughts with you on our history and where we are headed. This short video spells out the details. Click on the title or picture to view the video.
July is nearly over now, but its reminders can be savored all year long. In July our thoughts return in gratitude for the pioneers in our lives, those who blazed the trail for us in some ways that bless our lives today. We are inspired as we remember their courage which in turn can give us courage when we encounter hard things.
Peter and his wife Liz have long been an integral part of the Scudder Association Foundation. He and his family were frequent visitors to the Scudder Retreat on Shelter Island, NY, where the wind and the sea were woven into the family’s spirit. His presence within our organization will be sorely missed.
In honor of all the Scudders who made this Independence possible, we’d like to share this remarkable book by our former President, Hamilton Cochran with you.

In the meantime, we hope you will take a moment to enjoy this digital edition, as we report on the impact of your extraordinary support.
It is my privilege to share with you some very exciting news about Professor of Medicine and Vice Chair of Education at Stanford University Medical School, Dr. Abraham Verghese, who also happens to be a distinguished member of the Vellore CMC Foundation corporation!

“‘’Illay,* Amma,’ the brahmin replied proudly. ‘I would not think of having a man deliver my wife: I would rather that she should die than be seen by another man. If you cannot come, I must lose her.’ Ida had pled with the husband to let her father, Dr. John, deliver the baby, but to no avail. She had even offered to go with them and do what she could under her father’s direction, but the Brahmin was adamant. She had no medical training: she was forced to let this husband go without aid for his dying wife.
To wish you a happy Easter we are sharing a link to a beautiful, soothing and moving Easter concert that celebrates and depicts the life of Christ through music and art—through string and orchestral music with visuals from European artists’ paintings of Jesus Christ and some Bible video footage.
A Christmas Gift to You from Amos and Jedediah Scudder, etc,, and the Miracle of The Battle of Trenton with No ‘Summer American Soldiers or Sunshine Patriots There!’
The American army was in precarious condition in Pennsylvania, just across the Delaware River from New Jersey. Its numbers were estimated to have dwindled from 30,000 in the summer to 3,000. Washington’s soldiers were not well furnished, having had to leave supplies as they fled New York.
