Zelda Fisher Gourse starts by describing her decision to enter Pembroke, Dean Margaret Shove Morriss, and her favorite professors. She and the interviewer discuss travel in Israel and Ms. Gourse’s daughter, author Leslie Gourse; annual student events like Sophomore Masque and Junior Prom; her older sister’s decision to return to college; being elected SGA President (“why not a Jewish girl?”); and other campus activities. Gourse then describes her marriage and her career as a librarian at Bristol Community College. She ends the interview with an account of the Elizabethan club and the Erasmians.
