Article "Vaudeville Is Given As A Benefit"

Description

This article reviews the Westhampton College Class of 1924’s benefit show “Sophisticated Vaudeville.” In the summary, the author writes that Westhampton students wrote and performed the show. Especially of note is the first act minstrel show, where students Virginia Gregory (W'24) and Clara Black (W'24) played the roles of “a colored man and woman.” Proceeds from the production went to refurbishing the infirmary.
