The Silver Bay Committee, Boston, 1916

The Silver Bay Committee of Boston’s YWCA was composed of students from Boston University. In 1916, they came up with the idea of a circus to benefit Silver Bay. In costume, they performed skits and dramatizations. Speaking of Silver Bay, Doris Kennard (class of 1916), wrote, “We think of it as the dreamland, the fairy paradise, and to visit this place we make any sacrifice. Six hundred girls gather together. And what glorious times they have!”
