Oldfields to install Kathleen Jameson as headmistress

October 18, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Oldfields School will install Dr. Kathleen Jameson as headmistress this morning at the school's campus in Sparks.

Ceremonies will include the investiture blessing at Immanuel Episcopal Church, an academic procession of faculty and staff and lunch. Alumnae from across the country, trustees, students and faculty are expected to participate in the festivities on the 200-acre campus.

Jameson is the sixth head of the 130-year-old school, and the first woman to lead the all-girls' school in more than 100 years. Two female members of the founding McCulloh family were in charge in the early years.

Jameson came to Oldfields in July from the private Albuquerque Academy, where she had been head of the upper school, director of academic services and chairwoman of the performing arts department. She replaces Hawley Rogers, who retired last summer after 21 years as headmaster.

Oldfields has 190 students in grades 8 to 12, about 80 percent of whom are boarders.
