Overview and metadata sections

Mildred Pressinger (later Kienbusch) graduated from Bryn Mawr College with an A.B. in Philosophy and Psychology. She was a member of the Mayflower Descendants, the National Society of Colonial Dames, Founder and Patriots, and the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was also active in a number of charities in New York City. She married Carl Otto von Kienbusch, the owner of an internationally celebrated collection of medieval arms and armor. Her daughter, Juliana Kienbusch Little, graduated from Bryn Mawr in 1947. Mildred Pressinger Kienbusch died in 1968.

The Mildred Pressinger scrapbook houses a very large one-volume scrapbook containing a great deal of material from Mildred Pressinger's four years at Bryn Mawr College (1905-1909). The scrapbook contains a large amount of Bryn Mawr memorabilia.

The scrapbook consists of one volume. It contains many of the usual notes, invitations, and programs, but also much unique, smaller memorabilia such as hand-made cards, a great deal of Christmas cards and Valentines, and memorabilia from dances at BMC and other schools. The scrapbook also contains notices of meetings for clubs—notably the Christian Association and Undergraduate Association—and a large variety of correspondence. SGA is also well documented by the great number of announcements of meetings that list items on the agenda and an SGA rule interpretation guide.

This scrapbook contains a wide range of valuable materials. It would be of worth to anyone interested in Bryn Mawr history during the early nineteenth century, especially in SGA and the Christian Association.
