HISTORY

Two alumae, Barbara Nolen Strong '24 and Margaret Follen '28 had the idea of stocking a truck with 1000 books, equally divided between fiction and juveniles, and traveling during July and August in the New England area selling them. To advertise Radcliffe, the bookwagon bore the Radcliffe name and was painted red, carried Radcliffe catalogues, had Radcliffe bookmarks for each book sold, and if the books had to be mailed, used the Radcliffe seal on the envelope.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

This collection includes the projected plan for a Radcliffe Book Wagon and the story of its life, 1928-1930.
