One of several celebrations of the life of Candice Vadala aka Candida Royalle took place at Judson Memorial Church, NYC on November 22, 2015. Here is a slideshow, that Dianne Stasi made for that memorial.


Candida Royalle, a life of passion and purpose.
October 15, 1950 – September 7, 2015

One year after her death, Candida’s work goes to Harvard.

Despite her departure from this physical plane the work, the art and the vision of Candice Vadala aka Candida Royalle lives on. Her meticulously kept archives have been acquired by the Schlesinger Feminist Library at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. The archives of her Club 90 sister Gloria Leonard have also been acquired. As early as this fall, information from these archives will be used in classroom sessions. But the main focus of the Schlesinger Library under its director Jane Kamensky and curator, Katherine Allamong Jacob, and its archivists will be to digitize files so that they are available online and by appointment to researchers and scholars. It is expected that this process will be completed by early 2018, accompanied by a celebration. - Veronica Vera
