Sam: The Miami student is Gretchen, but not sure of the last
They were across the the hall from me: Gretch, Joanie, Myra
and ??? Kati Slayton and Vicki Toulah were in the next room

Francis Xavier Weyerich: I am envious of the large Mucha poster.
Sam: The Mucha Poster--I'm not sure if that belonged to Gretchen
or Joanie, but the sculpture immediately behind it on the wall was
one Joan did out of shampoo bottle tops that she got Breck to
donate. I remember the day the box of bottle tops came--
I think we had a party. Any excuse, right?
John Savoca: I do know the last name of the young lovely
identified as "Gretchen". It was Kleinpeter. (no joke)
Mark Rabiner: Her name was Gretchen Klinepeter. She told me her
dad was a racecar driver but retired almost. From Miami. As it turned
out her roommate, Joan Lipkin had gone to Hull House summer
camp with me when we were 13. I have pictures of her doing Ionesco's
Rhinoceros from then. About my first roll of slides. First absurd
theater I ever saw or heard of. At the Hull house reunion in Chicago 1990

done in St. Louis I believe she told me it's "Lesbian Theater".
