- About the Project
Blanche Castleman Link’s scrapbook was digitized as part of the ongoing Notable Women of Simmons College Digital Project, which captures and makes accessible the lives of early Simmons College women. Blanche’s scrapbook provides a glimpse into both Simmons College history and important events of the early twentieth century through playbills, clippings, ephemera, and other memorabilia, and strives to afford users an unprecedented opportunity to experience life as a Simmons College student in the early 1900s.
