The Lloyd Center is pleased to announce that Winifred “Winnie” Phyfe has been named the Committee Chair for Clambake XXXVII, “37 Years of Celebrating Science and Education!”
Born in Johnson City, Tennessee, Winnie attended the Emma Willard School in Troy, New York, Sweet Briar College in Virginia, Katharine Gibb’s School in New York City and Columbia University for General Studies.
Living in New York City, Winnie worked in advertising for Rockefeller Family & Associates and Spence School. She also worked as a paralegal until she moved to Rye, NY. She later returned to New York City and worked part-time as the Executive Director of The Association of Teachers.
Winnie’s husband, Jim Phyfe, worked in Hong Kong where they lived for eight years, and were able to travel extensively in the Far East. Upon Jim’s retirement, they returned to Dartmouth full-time. Winnie worked at the Lloyd Center for the Environment from 2015 – 2020 on a part-time basis (until the COVID pandemic). She has volunteered at the Center as needed ever since, especially on the Clambake Steering Committee. She hopes to be able to continue as a “helper” for years to come.
