Unfortunately one needs a subscription to The New Yorker to read this article. At least it keeps bumping me out.

Good article. I was a little surprised that, with all the other details of Ms. Gidden’s past, the author mentions next to nothing about her time at Oberlin, given the place has been rather more in the new of late than it would like.

Interesting that they have two corrections at the end but the article still says that Mebane is north of Greensboro when it is due west.

@Bill H
Bill when I go to that page, it says, on the bottom, "you have 3 free articles left this month". Perhaps you've watched your free articles, and will have to wait till next month? Anyway, I could scroll down the article using the wheel on my mouse. Hope this helps.
