A promising freshman pre-law student at Wellesley College, she was among 492 victims of Boston's infamous Coconut Grove night club fire. Factors contributing to the large number of lives lost were overcrowding, an extraordinarily rapid spread of an extremely hot and toxic gas generating fire, panic and confusion, locked exit doors and public unfamiliarity with the location of available exits. This event contributed greatly both to the development of fire codes and advances in burn treatments.
