MetadataShow full item record
The "Golden Girls" at Kennedy Airport, New York City, in the summer of 1970. Third from left is Debra Huff, Class of 1973. As part of the so called "K Plan," most Kalamazoo College students participated in Career Service during the spring quarter of their sophomore year. The 1970-1971 Catalogue describes Career Service as follows: "The objectives of this program are (1) to provide experience in a job related to the academic work and future career interest of each student; (2) to develop his independence and self-reliance; (3) to develop his sense of responsibility; and (4) to help a student learn to contribute to the objectives of his employer." The "Golden Girls" program began at Kennedy Airport in the late 1960s. With federal work study assistance, the program began employing college students in summers starting in 1969. The women employed were expected to speak at least one foreign language, and were stationed in the International Arrivals Terminal. The photographer and other "Golden Girls" are not identified.
