The will of author and educator, Eva March Tappan ’75, who died on January 29, 1930, left the bulk of her estate, some $200,000, to Vassar to establish the Eva March Tappan scholarship fund, the beneficiaries of which were to be young woman residents of Worcester County, Massachusetts.  Miss Tappan’s will directed the fund’s trustees “to exercise broad discretion” in their selections.     The New York Times
