FROM: SARAH JOHNSON . » L November 17, 1971 k“ -‘§._\


Miss Peterson returned the attached to me and said that she would do it if ghost written by and approved by Barbara and Kate. «

What do each of you suggest from here. I mention a concern in this memo of not feeling that I have been inside enough on recent women's center stuff to do this. However, I don't feel that this is the world's greatest publication. Shall we get together to talk over? Or, can either of you give

me 500 words off the top of your head? The mention of lOO words on para three of attached is incorrect——it is 500.

Deadline is sometime around early December but since Miss Peterson will have to read we should give her some time.



DATE: NOVEMBER 12, 1971 copy: Barbara Hertz

I l

Florence Shelly of the Class of 1940 (Pres. of the Class from 1965-70) called today. She was trying to call Barbara Hertz but got my extension and decided she would rather tell me her tale than try again . ‘

She works for a newsletter "Educational Training Market Report” which is distributed to schools and universities and, she said,

Acovers news relating to funding, etc.

Just before she called she got a "great brainstorm" which is to have you author an article (short about 100 words) for

the commentary section of her newsletter. She wants it on

the implications of women's lib on women's colleges and would like it for publication by Christmas.

I was asked to make the request and to call her on Tuesday with an answer.

Since I'm not at all familiar with the publication nor with the particular politics that may or may not relate to her

I thought I should throw this out to you and to Barbara in the form of a memo for consideration.

If you do it I suggest that someone more into the women's center than I am (the stuff I know I am using to convince the NY Times and I would hate to give it to a little newsletter before the Times gets a story out) should ghost write it.

I will be glad to deal with her and to be middle man but don't feel that I can do the best job. However, if the politics

of Mrs. Shelly are not great I could probably do a medocre

job with lOO words.
