In honor of Helen C. White’s 118th birthday, College Library staff gave away 118 cupcakes on Wednesday, November 26. Due to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, there were markedly fewer visitors to the library, but the dedicated few who remained on campus were able to enjoy a small treat in honor of our esteemed namesake.
Indeed, all of the cupcakes featured purple frosting because purple was Helen’s favorite color. She found it more flattering than black, but still easy to coordinate when packing for her many travels. For more information on Helen C. White, her writings and career, please visit our webpage.
