Welcome to the CaringBridge page for Margery Ganz. Though many of you know her well, Dr. Ganz retired in April 2017 following 36 years as the phenomenal Director of Study Abroad, and dedicated professor of History at Spelman. Her service to our alma mater was and remains epic. In a part-time capacity, Dr. Ganz still manages the Fulbright program at Spelman and can be seen on campus in the office she still maintains. She has been a pivotal force in the lives of hundreds of Spelman women. Dr. Ganz studied abroad in Florence, Italy while an undergraduate at the University of Rochester. She has traveled to nearly every corner of the Earth - checking in on Spelman women and ensuring any new programs abroad she approved were up to the high standards she demanded for us.
Recently, Dr. Ganz has experienced some health challenges that last week led to hospitalization and a preliminary diagnosis of Parkinson's. We are using this page to keep Spelman sisters, colleagues, family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support for our beloved professor and retired director of study abroad. Thank you for visiting! If you'd like to send a card, flowers, treats, etc. to Dr. Ganz after December 2, please mail to her home: Dr, Margery Ganz 276 Glen Cove Drive Avondale Estates, GA 30002
Thank you for respecting the sanctity of Dr. Ganz's home address information by not sharing it with people outside our trusted network. Please do navigate around this page to upload photos, stories, expressions of affection & well wishes, get health updates, see journal entries from myself and Spelman sister Kim Williams D'Haene, and make contributions, as possible, to help fill gaps in needs Dr. Ganz may have. We thank you for your support, no matter what form it takes. This is how we rally around those we love and respect in our Spelman network of sisters and beloved professors and staff.
