Q. How was Curry involved during WWII?
I'm curious why she was only at Curry one year. Also on a long shot if there are any records or papers about her.
I am writing my memoir. My previous book, Peril in the Ponds: Deformed Frogs, Politics, and a Biologist's Quest was published by U Mass Press in 2012
Hello, Judy -
This is a really interesting question! I know that Curry was a very small school during those years, and for several decades prior to at least the mid-1950s. Very small, as in graduating classes of about a dozen or fifteen people. I have had some opportunity to look at our College archival material. In places it's quite sketchy, but there are a couple of unpublished histories compiled by former (now deceased) faculty members and alumni. I don't recall much mention of the College, in and of itself, undertaking specific activites in relation to the war. However, this should be looked at!
I could begin to review the appropriate archival material next week, and I'll be happy to do so. Should we take this over to email? My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
