Just a little banking and what appears to be a fairly normal day for them here…

  1. Julia says:

    the looks of the twins and Carolyn were so different. I always wonder what Lisa is been doing these days.

  2. Jessika says:

    This was in People magazine in 2000:

    “Surviving daughter Lisa Bessette, 35, Lauren’s twin, remains enrolled in a doctoral program in art history/ Renaissance studies at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.”
    Although I read that she pursued her doctorate in Munich at the time of their deaths.
    Allegedly, Lisa and her husband Michael Roman moved to Europe a while later.

    This is from a newsletter from the University in Michigan from 2007:

    “Helicon: History of Art Student Organization
    Helicon, the undergraduate art history association, traveled to Paris last February with Professor Emeritus Ward Bissell. The purpose of Helicon’s annual spring-break trips is always to give Michigan art history students the opportunity to visit major museum collections, monuments, and architectural sites with a faculty member.
    The group also visited the Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre’s Nineteenth Century collection with Professor Howard Lay (who was already in France to launch the department’s new Michigan-in-Paris undergraduate art history program, see page 8). Lisa Bessette, who recently completed her PhD in medieval art at Michigan, led Helicon’s visit to Notre Dame and Ste. Chapelle, while Chris Leichtnam, a PhD candidate in modern art, took the students on tours of the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Musée Picasso.”

    I found this too:

    Early Medieval/Romanesque/Gothic Art
    Dissertations Completed by Subject, 2005
    Bessette, Lisa, “The Visualization of the Content of the Psalms in the Early Middle Ages” (Michigan, E. Sears)

    And there is this book:

    “Pen and Parchment: Drawing in the Middle Ages (Metropolitan Museum of Art) [Hardcover]”
    Melanie Holcomb (Author), Lisa Bessette (Contributor)
