The Whitehead Institute community is remembering, with great fondness and appreciation,  Emily Wade. Known to friends and associates as “Paddy,” Wade died this past February at the age of 98. Paddy was a wonderful and accomplished person who was part of the Whitehead community for nearly two decades.
