Nancy Perkins: A relative newcomer to Senior College, Nancy has been a lifelong mystery aficionado from Nancy Drew as a child through the latest good mystery yarn. While she was descended from a long line of teachers, she has never taught but has made a number of presentations on popular 20th and 21st century whodunits. She double-majored in English and History at Westhampton College of the University of Richmond, Virginia. Following graduation, she took 18 hour of education courses in preparation to teach but instead sought another career as a fundraiser. She was invited some years ago to make a presentation to the Anglophile Club of a Senior Retirement home and developed several presentations on British culture and history including mystery writing, Tudor Stuart History, and the British Raj and its impact on Britain today. She remains an avid anglophile, mystery fan and tea drinker!
