Scope and Content Note

Miscellaneous materials from Ballenberg's time as a student at Vassar College. Includes two poems by "Betty" and "Muriel." "Muriel" may be Muriel Rukeyser, VC 1934, but it may also be Muriel Fox, VC 1935. All three served on the Miscellany News, but because the poems are undated it is difficult to determine the authorship. The handwriting does not appear to be Rukeyser's. "Betty" may be Elizabeth Brown, VC 1935, Muriel Fox's freshman roommate.
