Starr's Saga Told at Harvard

Pforzheimer Student Fellowships Awarded to 14 Undergraduates

Carol K. Pforzheimer Student Fellowships have been awarded to 14 undergraduates to conduct research at the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America. The students will research their senior honors theses or independent projects during this academic year.
The recipients and their topics are:
Leah Newkirk of Adams House and Albany, N.Y.: "Telling the Faithfull Story: Historical Definitions of Violence Against Women and the Assault of Starr Faithfull"; . . . etc.
The Pforzheimer Student Fellowship Program is administered by the Schlesinger Library. The awards are supported by an endowed fund given to Radcliffe College by the Carl and Lily Pforzheimer Foundation, Inc., in honor of Carol K. Pforzheimer, who attended Radcliffe College from 1927-1930, and received a bachelor of arts from Barnard College in 1931. A director of the Radcliffe College Alumnae Association from 1964 to 1967, Carol Pforzheimer was a trustee of the College from 1967-1979. She and her late husband, Carl H. Pforzheimer Jr., '28, MBA '30, received Harvard Medals in June 1987 for their extraordinary service to the University. . . .
* * The awards, which range from $100 to $2,500, can cover expenses, or beused as a stipend in lieu of term or summer employment. Projects on women's work and the family, women and health, the history of community service and volunteer work, and the culinary arts are of special interest. These topics reflect the interests of Pforzheimer and those of five of her grandchildren who studied at Harvard and Radcliffe.
