Biography

Malvine Cole was born in New York in 1914. She attended Cornell University where she received her B.A. in English in 1934. Malvine is a multi-faceted woman whose talents and ambitions have brought her into the fields of writing, public relations and politics. Her accomplishments are noteworthy: free-lance writer for N.Y. World Telegram, Christian Science Monitor, N.Y. Times Sunday Magazine, Vermont Life and other publications since 1934; news reporter for the Washington Post and the Washington Times Herald, 1935-37; correspondent for the Bascom Timmons News Bureau, Fairchild Publications and the New York Times Bureau, 1937-40; Fawcett Publications correspondent, 1941-45; Rutland Herald columnist, 1954-55; published articles in the Atlantic Monthly, 1965-66; wrote and produced The Drama of Lincoln, N.H. for the Lincoln bicentennial Celebration in 1964.

Malvine's love of the arts motivated her to organize the Offski Theatre in Stowe (1968), and in the same year she became the artistic director of the Community of performing Arts (COPA) in Ripton. A year earlier she had been the public relations director of the Weston Playhouse.

Following her divorce in 1952, Malvine pursued a career in public relations, and she worked for: Henry Vail's Gubernatorial Campaign (1954-55), Norwich University (1955-56), Vermont MS Society (1957), Vermont Maple Industry Council (1957-61), A. Luke Crispe Congressional (1958) and Gubernatorial (1960) campaigns, Stratton Mountain Ski Development (1956-61), and the Philip H. Hoff Gubernatorial Campaign of 1964. Her interest in politics began in 1941 when she began a war nursery in Washington, D.C. (1941-45), and in 1955 her Vermont political career began when she was elected State Representative from Stratton. She served in various elected offices on the town level, but she failed to gain the State Senate seat in 1957. In 1968 she was a delegate to the New Party (founded by Dick Gregory) convention.
