Abstract:When we started with this research project, we had been searching the internet, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Archives and more, but we were having trouble finding information on Beulah Drom. We were able to interview Dr. Alyce Cheska, who was very close with Drom when the two were working at the University together. We also interviewed Dr. Betty Orlandino, a former student of Drom's.
