December 7, 1933

Former trustee Frank L. Babbott died. Mr. Babbott’s wife Lydia attended Vassar in the Class of 1877, and in 1899 he endowed a fellowship in her name and that of her eldest daughter Mary ’08—the anonymous donor in 1913 of the Students’ Building. His will bequeathed $540,000 to the college.

Mr. Babbott’s two other daughters were Lydia Babbott ’17 and Helen Babbott ’19.
