Beyond certain facts—her indifference to skin color, her admiration of Uncas, and her modest pleasure in his admiration of her—we have little concrete information on which to judge how responsive Cora might have been to Uncas as a suitor; in other words, whether or not she might have considered marriage to the young Indian chief. Nonetheless, Cooper makes sure that we consider the possibility. Hawk-eye, the only white present who understood their language, reacts differently. Hawk-eye is a mass of contradictions. He will not marry an Indian woman to save his own life.

He would rather be dead than red. The Huron, Delaware, and Mohican Indians are not as prejudiced as this white backwoodsman. Genesis 34 and The Last of the Mohicans offer parables of the lost opportunity for peaceful coexistence between Israelites or American neo-Israelites and natives; and both end up as narratives of violence, conquest, and racial extermination.

Intermarriage is the foundation of a vision of interracial harmony in Genesis 34 and The Last of the Mohicans. In each, this vision is shattered in a bloody conclusion. The historical novelist could not change what happened; his task was to understand it. When Cooper conceived The Last of the Mohicans in , Indian removal and slavery in the West were topics of ongoing public debate; moreover, starting with George Washington in , except for one four-year term, Virginians had continuously served as President of the United States, and they had all been slaveholders.

Duncan Heyward, a member of the Virginia slaveholding elite, and Hawk-eye, a trailblazer opening up the West for settlement, may represent the racial views about intermarriage between whites and blacks or Indians that will prevail, determining who is included and who is excluded, and shape the future of the land.

Quoted in Nathan O. Hatch and Mark A. Nathan O. Daryl E. James Franklin Beard. Cambridge: Harvard University Press, , V, In his introduction to Last of the Mohicans , Cooper acknowledged his debt to Heckewelder 3. See Cooper, Last of the Mohicans , , , , Ernest A. She grew up in Maryland and attended Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School, an all-girls school that she credits as a guiding force in shaping her to become a strong, self-reliant, intellectually curious woman of faith and purpose. Marilyn was a graduate of Marquette University and spent her junior year at the Sorbonne where she received her diploma with honors.

She also attended the Ecole Du Louvre in Paris. Following her graduation, she began her teaching career with Teachers of America in Roxbury, MA before returning to D. In the Spring of , she met Ken in Georgetown shortly after his return from Vietnam. They were married in June and moved to Bronxville, NY. They joyfully celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary in June.

She was soon appointed Chair of the English Department, a position she held for nearly 20 years. Marilyn pursued the craft of teaching with unparalleled passion.

She taught her students to adore the beauty of the written word, to write with bold precision, to voice their opinions, and to clarify their thinking. She insisted that each student hold themselves to higher standards both inside and outside of the classroom. She was a teacher who was as likely to rework an English essay a dozen times with a student, as she was to bake birthday cakes for her advisees, and as a result, she developed life-long relationships with many of her students.

After Marilyn retired from Brunswick School, she and Ken moved from New Canaan, Connecticut, to Woodstock where they had owned a summer and weekend home since Marilyn soon realized she was not ready for retirement and as a devoted member of Most Holy Trinity Church in Pomfret she headed the committee that restored and renovated the church in As her last project, Marilyn recently needle-pointed the altar chairs at Most Holy Trinity. Marilyn was a Trustee of the Church at her death.

In the Summer of , Marilyn came out of retirement and began the most rewarding job of her career when she was appointed Headmistress of Marianapolis Preparatory School in Thompson, CT. She became the first woman and first head of the School not a Marian Father. She had a clear vision for the school, and during her 10 years at Marianapolis enrollment rose from students to , facilities were updated, two new dormitories for boarding students were purchased, as were several houses for faculty.

In , she and her husband represented The Trinity Foundation in its purchase of Marianapolis from the Congregation of Marian Fathers. With her vision realized and goals met, in , Marilyn retired as Headmistress Emerita. At her retirement, the Board of The Trinity Foundation named the gate at the entrance to the school Ebbitt Gate in her honor. Most notably her Thanksgivings, Christmases, and birthdays were famously huge and beautifully decorated—each a perfect jumble of organized chaos, delicious food, heaps of children, dogs, pool floats, pinatas, gingerbread candy houses, wrapped gifts, books, and cut flowers.

No matter the celebration, it was guaranteed the house would be full of laughter, friends, wonderful memories, and an endless amount of cake. Marilyn found her greatest happiness in making others happy. She brimmed with life—she drank it up—and she will be deeply missed by all who knew her. She is also survived by her sister Dee Cramsie and her brother Ernest A. Sarao Jr. Relatives and friends are invited to a visitation from p. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at a.

Offer Condolence for the family of Marilyn S. She had such a personalization about her in which she remembered and cared about everyone. She will be truly missed. My heart goes out to her husband Ken and family. From the moment she was diagnosed, she was always one of the most positive and happiest people in any room.

She was always full of sage advice and willing to lend an ear to listen or shoulder to cry on. I will always cherish my memories of baking Christmas cookies and macarons with her and our families picking out and cutting down our Christmas trees together the day after Thanksgiving. She was such an incredibly generous person and she truly will be missed. I was honored and privileged to be her friend, through my classmate, Ken.

She, and you all, will remain in my heart and prayers.

Ebbitt for all she has done for the school. Thank you very much! Dear Mr. Ebbitt, Carolyn, Kenny and Ebbitt family, I enjoyed every moment I was lucky to have with your wife and mother. She was so positive, so thoughtful, so exuberant, so warm.. One of the greatest lessons that Camp has taught me is that life, undeniably, continues past this life.

I hope you will sense her presence and find some comfort knowing she is still a part of your life. As a four year professional basketball player today and a continuing career, I owe much of my success to Mrs. She gave me a once in a lifetime opportunity during a very difficult time, and went out of her way to make sure I was always happy and comfortable.

I will forever remember her beautiful and contagious smile, her words of encouragements, her hugs and natural ability to make EVERYONE around her feel happy and comfortable. My condolences to the Ebbitt family, she will be dearly missed, but rest assure that her legacy will forever live through those of us she has deeply impacted. Marilyn was remarkable in her commitment to helping young people identify their goals and set forth on paths that would lead to lives of giving back, of faith and learning. Marilyn strove to make learning exciting. I was delighted when she asked me to share my passion for archaeology with her students.

Her enthusiasm for inspiring students was heartfelt.
