Always unconventional, she took flying lessons at age 16 and began her interest in jazz. She arrived in Boston in her early 20s and met with writers and reporters who encouraged her to pursue a career in advertising. For the next 20 years, Kip had a fruitful writing career, creating mail order catalogues, direct mail pieces and all varieties of ads.
She also ventured into writing and producing musical reviews and, at the time of her death, was rewriting a play about housing, hope and humor she penned two decades earlier. Kip also wrote articles concerning issues important to the Catholic left that appeared in numerous local papers, including The Boston Globe.
Her work took her into housing projects, mental institutions, jails and hospitals, where she saw firsthand the effects of de-institutionalization and the lack of a coherent public policy to address the needs of poor and homeless people.
In she established the Ethical Policy Institute, a multi-disciplinary community of people engaged in political analysis, economics and community activism and taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Massachusetts.
A vibrant public speaker and social commentator, Kip lectured at hundreds of high schools, colleges, churches and conferences and published articles in national as well as local publications.This post was contributed by a community member.
