Susan Goldberg Lamb ’57, the first female associate at Proskauer Rose Goetz & Mendelsohn, was a dedicated fundraiser whose efforts helped to finance the construction of many education and medical buildings in New York during the 1970s and 1980s. She passed away on July 27, 2008, at the age of 72.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., Lamb attended Cornell University prior to beginning her legal studies at Columbia Law School. She received her J.D. at the age of 21 and joined Proskauer Rose in New York. Lamb eventually left the firm to move to London with her husband, and together the couple owned and operated a public relations firm. During that time, Lamb also served as an on-air correspondent for the British Broadcasting Corporation.

After 10 years in England, Lamb returned to New York City and embarked on a nonprofit
career, devoting nearly 40 years to raising funds for institutions such as The New York Public Library, the American Ballet Theater, the Montefiore Medical Center, and Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc.

Lamb is survived by her daughter, Fiona, and by her friend of many years Carole Potter.
