Lois V. Stanton, "Tales of a Haverford R and R Girl"
Scope and Contents
- Stanton, Lois V. (Lois Virginia), 1922- (Author, Person)
Upon returning to the United States, Stanton lived on several college campuses where her husband served as an administrator, ultimately settling in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, in 1957. While raising children, she continued her aid-based interests, working part-time and as a volunteer with no fewer than 13 organizations, including the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. In 1966, she began a 25-year career with the Department of Public Assistance for Delaware County, Pennsylvania, fighting against stigmatization of welfare recipients. In 1992, she self-published this collection of letters and other writings about her experiences at Haverford and with the AFSC. Lois V. Stanton died in 2016.
