Betty Evershed Weidel '46
The archives has a wonderful scrapbook a student kept of her experiences here in the 1940s. Betty Evershed (Weidel) '46 included snapshots of her friends, places they lived, things they did, flyers, notices, stories from campus events and activities and much more. It really is a remarkable record of one student's experience here at that time. The only thing is that we don't have much information on Betty and her life subsequent to graduating from Brockport. She was from Rochester, trained as a teacher here, and lived at one time in Webster, but that's all we know really. The archivist is planning on scanning her scrapbook and making it available through this blog as well as in other ways, but if you know anything about Betty your information would be most welcome. Email the archivist, Charlie Cowling, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much!
