Dana Ruzickova Papers

 Collection
Identifier: M441
Overview This collection contains a scrapbook created by Dana Ruzickova during 1983-1984. It was determined that this scrapbook belongs to Dana due to a large number of photographs of her; there are some of her injured, with a notation that indicates she was preparing for a period of "TV and boredom." There are also photographs of her trip to Denmark. To cross-check, the K-book from 1983 was consulted for photographs of the 1983 tennis team.
Dates: Other: 1983-1984
