Jillian Piccirilli ’08 formed a close relationship with a woman she’ll never meet: Alison Mason Kingsbury, an accomplished artist, dedicated Ithacan and wife of Cornell historian and professor Morris Bishop.
Alison Jolly, the artist’s daughter, began working with Piccirilli in 2008 to create a complete catalog of her mother’s work. The catalog grew into a book, “The Art and Life of Alison Mason Kingsbury,” published in 2010 by Cornell University Library.
