Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Collection includes a scrapbook containing university forms, clippings, programs, brochures, photographs, and other memorabilia from Cameron’s student days at Stanford, 1965-1969; and outgoing letters to family, 1965-1967, discussing her social life, fashions, dorms, athletic events, excursions off-campus, and her time in the overseas program in Britain. Some of the letters were typed in the form of a newsletter she called the “Stanford Scandal Sheet.” Items of note in the scrapbook include Operation Match questionnaire (computerized dating service), memo re pre-football game activities on campus involving a cable car and photographs of the cable car, a white armband from a Vietnam War protest, 1967, and the undergraduate women’s bill of rights (re living off-campus), 1967.
Katherine (Kit) Cameron earned her AB in English at Stanford in 1969; as a student she was active in campus theatricals, served on the Ram’s Head board in 1966/67, and participated in the overseas program at Harlaxton Manor in England, June-December 1967.
