Princeton girlfriend

Claiborne was a handsome young man, with no shortage of opportunities for dates. Here he is with "Missy," a girlfriend in 1940, the year he graduated from Princeton. His scrapbook has more photos of Missy, whose last name I have been unable to learn. Anyone out there know?
I found this photo while writing Chapter Two, which begins with ancestor Pells and ends with Claiborne entering the Coast Guard in 1941. It's a long and (hopefully) fascinating chapter, but I am nearly done.The photo is contained in Pell's personal scrapbook, Volume 2, which covers mostly his college years.
Isn't this another great one? I get lost in time, literally, going through Pell's early life...
