The Walton Periwinkle. [High School Yearbook Featuring Bella Abzug's Inscribed Senior Class Portrait. ]

Bronx, New York: 1938. Item #2109

10 ¾” x 7 7/8”. Blue cloth. Pp. 100. Very good: boards unevenly faded with spots of soiling and some loss at corners and spine tips; shaken but holding firmly. The senior high school yearbook of the Bronx's Walton High School, an all girls school at the time. This copy features Bella Abzug (Savitzky) in her senior year with a prophetic inscription, “Despite Schein/we'll all/get to the top/together. ” Miss E. Hedwig Schein was chair of the music department. The printed quote next to her portrait reads, “it is not in mortals to command success, but she will do more—she will deserve it. ” Abzug's image also appears at least three other times including group photos of senior officers (she was class president) and who's who (she was voted most popular).
