Public Information

from the donor: "Under separate cover, I have mailed three pictures from our wedding on June 9, 1958. I graduated in the morning(as President of my class and a summa (or magna) cum laude and married at three in the afternoon in the Vassar College Chapel, witnessed by family, friends and many classmates. It was a most exciting and hectic and memorable day!
My dress was white organdy with re embroidered Alencon lace and seed pearls scattered throughout. My headpiece was Alencon with seed pearls. It was a very classic dress of the period.
The wedding dress was worn as a party and Hallowe’en costume many times before it finally bit he dust!"
