On May 29, Radcliffe Day, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg received the Radcliffe Medal, presented annually to “an individual who has had a transformative impact on society.” Before Justice Ginsburg delivered a speech about her historic career, lunch was served (salmon! again!) under a tent in Radcliffe Yard. On my right is poet Anne Pierson Wiese, and to my left is novelist V.V. Ganeshananthan.
