  • Papers of a resident of Madison, Wisconsin, who served as a VISTA volunteer teacher in Lancaster, South Carolina. The core of the collection is a tape-recorded autobiography which contains information on her youth in post-World War I Germany and later life in Madison during the Depression, as well as her experiences as a VISTA volunteer. References to her volunteer activities are bolstered by diaries; students' work; printed copies of Me, a booklet she prepared utilizing a pupil's drawings which was used by VISTA as a recruiting tool; drafts of unpublished writings; a tape recording of an interview on the Today program about Me; and an additional tape recording and a home movie she made in Lancaster.


  • The film in this collection also is cataloged individually.
  • Presented by Lea Heine, Madison, Wisconsin, 1975-1979.
