The Abbot C i r c 19 2 7 MARJORIE KNOWLTON Wellesley Class Treasurer ' 24 Spanish Play ' 27 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Student Council ' 27 Andover, Massachusetts Five years Arm Band ' 23 A. D. S. ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 A. D. S. Play ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Peg is " Crazy over Horses, Horses, Horses. " She is not terribly domestic, but she does like to cook. As for acting — Peg can impersonate any character from an innocent little girl to the in- quisitive Mrs. Stubbs. Rumor says that she was an awfully good roommate up at Intervale, and that she helped make her own bed the first night — it was pretty cold that first night, too! Next year we certainly shall miss the sight of Peg, before the mirror in the dressing room, arranging the front part of her crowning glory. EDNA LOUISE MARLAND Ballardvale, Massachusetts Jackson College Five years Fidelio ' 24, ' 25, ' 26, ' 27 Senior Mid Play ' 26 Volley Ball Numerals ' 26 Senior Play ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Honor Roll ' 23, ' 24, ' 25, ' 27 Edna is one of the old standbys of our class, always doing her work so diligently, as an Abbot girl should, a quality which many of us lack utterly. She will do anything for you, and can be found, when needed, holding down one of those big comfortable chairs in the Senior Parlor. She has also been seen on the Abbot stage, wrapped in a cloak of mystery. We wish you all kinds of success, Edna, next year at Jackson — we mean Tufts College. 23

The Abbot Circle 19 2 7 NANCY PAGE KIMBALL " Nan " " Nance " Waban, Massachusetts The Nursery Training School of Boston Two years Fidelio ' 26 Baseball Numerals ' 26 Arm band ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Philomatheia ' 26, ' 27 Draper Dramatics ' 26 President Philomatheia ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Hiking Leader ' 27 Class Book Board ' 27 Posture Honor Roll ' 26, ' 27 Entertainment Committee ' 27 Little Miss Nancy is all " whys? " and " hows? " but that is why we like her. Always the same is our Nancy, never cross or grumpy. And she is conscientious, too, in everything she does from studies to going to play rehearsals. One morning we heard an odd squeal from the Chapel steps; it was only Nancy, who suddenly read from a letter that she was to go abroad this summer. We wish her the best of luck, and send her forth with our love. We only hope that she will put off falling in love until she returns, for fear that she may live abroad forever. MARY ROE KNIGHT " Sis " Monroe, New York Vassar Two years Arm Band ' 26 Volley Ball Numerals ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Draper Dramatics ' 26 Advisory Board ' 27 Mary Roe may be quiet — but isn ' t it some- thing to have a quiet person around for a change when one is among girls who are, for the most part, at the gushing age? And what counts most is that inside Mary ' s head is a brain that many of us would like to have. It not only issues forth poetry, but a rare wit at all times. Betty says that you just can ' t quarrel with her — for the main reason that she is always right. Many have not stopped, even yet, to look up surprised when she walks into the Senior Parlor. It is only when the Courant comes out or she makes some wise remark that we realize that she is a far better Senior than a lot of us. Be sure and have a funny poem ready for us for our first reunion, Mary Roe. 22

Why was she not a blonde! Her " a-haw " in Quality Street will be an amusing memory of Jerry ' s many funny acts of fame. Another memorable deed is her able captaincy of the Basketball Team this year. For one who lives so far away, Jerry certainly knows an astonishing number of our neighbors on the Hill — would that more of us were as easily befriended! HARRIET ESSELSTYN NASH " Hen " Washington, D. C. Two years Captain Tennis Team ' 27 Tennis Singles ' 26, ' 27 Tennis Doubles ' 26 School Cheer Leader ' 27 Athletic Council ' 27 Class Cheer Leader ' 27 Senior Play ' 27 Hen can really do almost anything with superlative ability. Her capacity for activities extends from cleaning a room to playing the piano. Her particular hobby is tennis, and collecting tennis trophies. Hen ' s mind involun- tarily turns every thing she does to music; as a result, she can write the most eloquent poetry. What would Abbot have done without Hen to write new songs and often even the music! We question whether she will continue a musical career, or give up that achievement for the life of a poetess and author. 24 Fidelio ' 26, ' 27 " A " Society ' 26, ' 27 French Play ' 26 Senior-Mid Play ' 26 Q.
