From the Mar-Ken 1940 Yearbook, as a Freshman:
BETTY SHATTUCK – (Born in Los Angeles, California)
She likes to dance, collect records, read books of the Sue Barton series, study Spanish, listen to the song “Billy”, and refuse broccoli and turnips for dinner. White orchids are her favorite flowers; geraniums irk her. Her favorite color is powder blue, and her main ambition is to have fun. But, by the way, have you seen the Shattuck girl draw? Her work with a pencil or brush is very fine, and I’m willing to bet that she will be a fine artist.
