  • Letter from Beatrice Wulf, Secretary to LP, to R. Perkins, Bloomfield Schools, RE: Considering Helen York for a secretarial position at Gates and Crellin. York said that she taught in the Bloomfield Schools from 1948 to 1954 and gave Perkins' name as a reference. The position for which York is applying involves a large amount of clerical work involved with keeping detailed records of 60 graduate students. Would involve working in cooperation with students and faculty, as well as with other offices of the Institute. York has not held a position of this sort, but her teaching, counseling, and library work qualify her for the position. Requests a frank evaluation of York's abilities and personality.
