Scope and Contents

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.
