Alumna Writing Book On '50s Vassar Girl

London-based writer and fashion historian Rebecca C. Tuite, who has written posts for Ivy Style about Vassar in the bygone days (1 and 2), is working on a full-length book about Vassar women's style in the 1950s. Tuite is a Vassar alumna and according to her website, Vassar Style: Fashion, Feminism and 1950s American Media will be released in early 2011.

Tuite's project will coincide perfectly with the upcoming Sesquicentennial celebration. "Congratulations to Vassar and everyone involved in the Vassar Sesquicentennial activities - it is thrilling and fascinating to see all this archival material come through for all to share!" she writes on her website.

We also highly recommend her blog for more photos and insight on the history of Vassar fashion.

(By the way, we drafted this post before noticing that she linked to our Sesquicentennial pictures post.)
