Robert Searing, of Vestal, NY

Friday, January 28th, 2011

Another Searing obit has come to my attention.  There is more at:  http://bit.ly/dXep8U   “Robert Searing, 78, of Vestal, passed away on Sunday, January 23, 2011, surrounded by his loving family. He was predeceased by his wife, Ethel (the love of his life); his parents, Albert and Anna Searing; his brothers, Albert and William Searing; and his sister-in-law, Dorothy Searing.”       This upstate NY area is where some of my early paternal relatives came from, so this is very interesting.  If anyone knows more about the family history, or is interested in this families genealogy, please contact me.

Elsa Searing McGinn

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Just happened upon mention of Echoes of Other Days, by Elsa Searing McGinn and Howard Glyndon, who of course is Laura Redden Searing.  Ms Mcginn is her daughter.  The best reference to the book is: http://bit.ly/hEheYk     A Google Books reference.  It can also be found on eBay, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble, to mention just a few possible sources.  I know nothing about the book and would appreciate any information.  At some point I would also like some information on Ms. Mcginn, and will research her when time permits.

Marjory Searing

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

It is with great pleasure that I update the Notable Searing category.  I have been experimenting with seeking out new ‘candidates’ on the web, and Marjory Searing came up in a Google Alert.  She has had an amazing career that was well summarized for us by the Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT):  “Throughout her career, our speaker, Marjory Searing, has been a role model for women seeking to achieve success in the field of international trade.  The first female to have graduated from Georgetown University with a Ph.D in Economics, Searing went on to blaze trails for women at the Treasury and Commerce Departments beginning in the 1970s.  She directed the Commerce Office of Multilateral Affairs during the Uruguay Round of GATT negotiations, was Deputy Assistant Secretary for Japan during the height of US-Japan trade tensions in the 1990s, and led the US & Foreign Commercial Service, with over 3,000 employees worldwide, before leaving government for the private sector.  Most recently, Searing retired from Pfizer, Inc, where she headed that corporation’s international government affairs function.”    The link is:   http://www.giuffrida.org/wiit/events/current/69.html    This is such a distinguished career I would like to get Marjory to tell us more about her work.  Meanwhile I am happy to welcome her to our list.
