OFFICE OF ASSOCIATE ALUMNAE

July 15, 1971 Dear Kate,

Here is the final version of the talk -- much shorter and tighter and, I hope, a good deal more ”sayable” than the first disjointed working version.

I have tried to incorporate all your excellent ideas in the revision. The relation- ships between.Task Force, College and alumnae, and the weight of the Task Force's recomenda- tions have, I hope, been clarified. Also I have paraphrased the report throughout, since much direct quotation is awkward in an oral presentation. The paragraph at the top of page 4 should adequately explain the fact that much of what follows comes from the report, and that it is an effort additional to academic programs for women. I hope you agree.

I am looking forward to working with you on some of the alumnae-oriented projects in the fall —- I too found our last meeting very satisfying.

Have a great summer.
