When she was attending the University of Illinois, Dorothy became close friends with Rayna Prohme and Samson Raphaelson. She writes about both in "From Union Square to Rome," in Chapter 5 and in "The Long Loneliness" in the chapter titled "University," and they are mentioned many times in her Diaries. Rayna was a Communist and died young in Moscow. Raphaelson by then a successful play-wright died in New York in 1983. Dorothy was in touch with him at least until 1978. A revival of one of his plays "Accent on Youth," is scheduled to open in New York on the 7th of April. RS.
