Abstract

Susan Vastine (b. 1942) earned her BA from Florida Presbyterian College, now known as Eckerd College, in 1964 and her MLIS from Emory University in 1965. She moved to Florida upon applying for a position in USF’s cataloging department. From her arrival at USF as an associate librarian, she was involved with the Women’s Club. During this oral history interview, Susan Vastine recounts her experience with the Women’s Club at USF from the 1960s until the present. She describes the club’s priorities and format, along with some of the personalities that made the club what it was. She also comments on the difficulties of keeping the tradition of the club relevant as gender roles shift away from the home and into the workplace.
