Dorothy Ann Haus, class of 1964

Dorothy Haus was born and raised in Brattleboro, Vermont. Her father was an uneducated millionaire and her mother was a Pembroke College graduate (class of 1922). It was expected that she and her siblings would attend college. Haus decided on Pembroke after she saw the campus and started in the fall of 1958. Her father died during her freshman year and when her mother died during her junior year, she moved back to Vermont to take care of her family. During that time, Haus met her husband, a Providence College graduate, and they married in 1963. She returned to Pembroke the following year and graduated in 1964. After graduation, Haus worked in Brown’s Admission Office for a few years before she and her husband moved to California for fourteen years where she worked for the Claremont Colleges in the Admissions Office and the Political Science Department. While working at Claremont, Haus had the opportunity of being a speechwriter for then Governor Ronald Reagan. Eventually, she had one daughter, moved back to Rhode Island, and worked in the Admissions Office at Brown University.
