Clarice d'Almeida Pitta, class of 1933

Clarice d'Almeida Pitta was born on April 6, 1910 to John Carlos Pitta and Anne d’Almeida. She began studying at Pembroke College in 1929 at the onset of the Great Depression, which greatly affected her undergraduate experience. After she graduated from Brown in 1933 with degrees in Latin and English, she struggled to find employment during the difficult economic times. Pitta and her husband eventually settled in California.
