London Family

Clara and Oscar London both graduated from Baruch, though they didn't meet at Baruch. Clara majored in accounting, but never worked in accounting because women were barred from the profession immediately after WWII. She worked as a bookkeeper and in the 60s went to NYU to pursue a Master's degree in vocational rehabilitative counseling. She worked for the state helping with rehabilitation of disabled people. Her husband worked in foreign trade for a number of years until he started his own textile brokerage company. He worked mostly in rayon and synthetics. Clara and Oscar have three children, two still living, Joel and Bette. They lost their daughter, Robin. She went to Stonybrook and worked as an acupuncturist in California. "She left a very good feeling with her patients." More than 300 people attended her memorial service in NY including many of her patients.
