Sidenote on Dorothy Espenscheid



One day many years ago, on a whim, I bought a 1938 University of Illinois yearbook. Later I would discover Dorothy (Sharp) Espenscheid was a sophomore during the 1937-38 school year and appears in the yearbook several times. She was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority and was active in women's sports. The photo below shows Dorothy misidentified as Anita Silverman (far right). She was a member of the Terrapin and Telegraphic swimming teams, as well as the Women's Athletic Association.
