Without a date on this postcard, I couldn't trace this woman by name alone, since there was another Helen Stearns in the class of 1907. Luckily for me, though, she addressed the card to a Karl Phillips who was at Tufts at the same time, so I got help from the Tufts alumni association, and found out that Karl Phillips graduated in 1917.

Helen Rachel Stearns was listed as living in 22 Porter in the 1914-15 MHC directory, and in 55 Porter in the 1916-17 MHC directory.
