Dr. Eileen Kramer Dodd 
Dr. Eileen Kramer Dodd of Fredericksburg died Saturday, Nov. 28, 1998, at her home.
A native of Coplay, Pa., Dr. Dodd was a psychology professor at Mary Washington College for 44 years. The college’s auditorium is named for her.
Dr. Dodd was a long-time member of the Presbyterian Church and a member of the Rappahannock Valley Garden Club and the Fredericksburg Literary Club.
She began her tenure at Mary Washington in 1926—becoming the first woman on the faculty with a Ph.D.
According to a history of the college by Dean Emeritus Edward Alvey Jr., Dr. Dodd wondered if she had made a mistake when she arrived to find her lodging contained little furniture and a worn carpet. According to Alvey, she decided to stay after seeing a mimosa tree blooming outside her window.
Alvey said Mary Washington College was glad she did.
“She was very popular as a teacher,” said Alvey, who came to the college in 1934. “Psychology was one of the outstanding majors at the college, and Mrs. Dodd kept up with her field by taking summer courses. She just enjoyed learning.”
Dr. Dodd also enjoyed teaching, and made a tremendous impact on the lives of many of her students.
“She greatly inspired many students over the course of her teaching career,” said Lisa Bales–Moroge, Dr. Dodd’s goddaughter. “Of course, one of those was my mother.”
Bales–Moroge’s mother, Mary Kelly, was one of Dr. Dodd’s students, and later returned to become her colleague in the psychology department.
“She gave a tremendous amount of herself to her students,” Bales–Moroge said. “She made an impact because of who she was. She had a grace and elegance and style about her. She was a beautiful person in the way she carried herself, the way she expressed herself, the way she cared about her students.
“That’s hard to find these days.”
Dr. Dodd served as an adviser to many student organizations and led a variety of faculty committees and activities. She chaired the psychology department for 18 years.
In 1980, Mary Washington College renamed the former George Washington Auditorium the Eileen Kramer Dodd Auditorium.
She was married to the late James H. Dodd, who was an economics professor at the college. 
A funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Oak Hill Cemetery, with the Rev. Allen H. Fisher Jr. officiating. Mullins & Thompson Funeral Service, Fredericksburg Chapel, is handling arrangements.
The family requests that expressions of sympathy take the form of contributions to the Fredericksburg Rescue Squad, Box 444, Fredericksburg, Va. 22401 or Hospice Support Care Inc., 2119 Lafayette Blvd., Fredericksburg, Va. 22401.
