LaVerne Rutherfurd received her diploma from the University of Southern California on June 10, 1939. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the College of Letters Arts and Sciences. It lists her major as psychology, which was totally new information to me.

Tucked behind the diploma was a certificate certifying that she served on the Sophomore Class Council, which I believe is part of the USC student government. I did not know she had been involved in the student council, either. It's wonderful information, and makes me wonder what other treasures I will find in these files and boxes.
