Beverly Baker ’54 believes strongly in the value of an IC education and has chosen to make a planned gift in support of Ithaca College.
Born and raised in Ithaca, Beverly spent some 20 years in broadcasting in Ithaca, Syracuse, and New York City and then entered the travel industry. She opened her own agency, Baker Travel, in Ithaca in 1973. She shares with great pride that one of the very first two checks she ever wrote from the business was for her membership in the Friends of Ithaca College.
Beverly was president of the Friends of Ithaca College during IC’s centennial year, and is largely responsible for the Founder’s Day Concert in the Park, held in Dewitt Park, where the original Ithaca Conservatory of Music was founded by W. Grant Egbert.
