VASSAR WAR RELIEF PROGRAM TO AID BOTH EUROPE AND ASIA

Vassar Miscellany News, Volume XXV, Number 31, 12 February 1941

Article Summary: The Vassar Emergency Relief Drive was organized “to meet the constant demands for foreign war relief.” Ellen Coan ’42, during the drive’s opening salute, stated that “Not only will the Drive be Varsar’s collective expression of sympathy for the innocent victims of war, but it will also be the individual expression of each contributor of his belief in the supreme worth of every human being.”

“We at Vassar are relatively secure. We cannot vividly imagine the conditions prevailing in the war-torn areas of Europe and China.”
