With deep sorrow Carleton College announced the passing of Eleanor "Ele" Hansen, long-time chair of the Women's Physical Education Department. Hansen, age 92, died on Saturday, July 20. Hired in 1952, Hansen also taught physical classes and coached both women's softball and cross country for 34 years, until her retirement in 1986. She will forever be known as one of the true matriarchs of women’s athletics, not only at Carleton but also across the country. A highly dedicated physical educator and coach, Hansen was responsible for appointing Carleton's first women's athletic director in 1970 and remained a sharp, feisty, and fierce advocate for women's sports for decades.
