Scope and Contents

The Scrapbook of Dorothy Asher (Meyer) '31 comprises the scrapbook kept by Dorothy Asher '31. The scrapbook, which primarily covers the years 1927-1931, consists of newspaper clippings, photographs, and personal memorabilia. The scrapbook provides insight into student life at Bryn Mawr during the late 20s and early 30s. The collection is comprised of one scrapbook. The scrapbook contains a very large amount of newspaper clippings and photographs, mostly concerning Dorothy Asher and her classmates and their achievements at BMC. The scrapbook contains the typical social memorabilia, calling cards, and professional photos, but also contains a large collection of photographs taken from a personal camera. Most of the material is from Asher's years at Bryn Mawr (1927-1931), but there are also materials from Asher's life in the 1930s, and reunion memorabilia from 1956-1981. Asher's scrapbook provides an in-depth look into student life during the late 20s and early 30s. The scrapbook might be of particular interest to those researching students in science (Asher was a biology major), May Day, the Philadelphia influenza outbreak of 1929, and reunion memorabilia. Also contains a photograph of Katherine Hepburn as "Pandora" from May Day 1928.

Description and contents:

The Josephine (Schnurman) Case scrapbook is comprised of a two-volume scrapbook created by Josephine Case, class of 1954. The scrapbooks, which cover 1950-1954, contains mostly materials about theatrical and musical performances at Bryn Mawr College and beyond. There is also a great amount of personal correspondence and cards, as well as some casual photographs in good condition. The collection is comprised of a two-volume scrapbook. The first volume highlights material from 1950-52, while the second volume is composed of material from 1952-54. Highlights of the first volume include photos of the class of '52's play "As you Swipe It"; handwritten plans for set and stage management of 1951 Arts Night, with program; 3 photos of a Bi-Co production of Othello, several photos from "The Shoemaker's Prodigious wife", with program; playbill from the Cort Theater: Katherine Hepburn in "As You Like It"; quiz (with corrected answers) on the rules and regulations of dorm and social life; and Case's sign-out sheet from Rockefeller. The second volume highlights include 3 photos from '54's "Opening Soon" with program; 2 photos from "The Boy with a Cart"; and 2 photos from '57's "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness"; playbills from New York City theaters 1952-54, playbills from BMC Class Plays, BMC/Haverford College Drama performances, and BMC/HC musical performances, 1952-54. This scrapbook is primarily a record of Case's involvement (generally as a stage manager) with both Bryn Mawr and bi-college theatrical productions and of her interest in the theater in general. Case's scrapbook does not provide a feeling for the typical BMC experience in the early 1950s, but it does provide a rather interesting record of a personality and of one kind of extracurricular life.

Description and contents:

The Elizabeth Congdon scrapbook collection houses the two scrapbooks kept by Elizabeth Congdon, class of 1902. The scrapbooks, which cover 1898-1901 and 1901-1902 respectively, document Congdon's social life at Bryn Mawr, as well as many off-campus events. The scrapbook consists of two volumes. Volume 1 covers Congdon's freshman- junior years (1898-1901), and contains an assortment of material, including her room assignments for 1898 and 1899; homemade valentines; programs from the Bryn Mawr Class Play 1898-1901and the Bryn Mawr Glee and Banjo Club performances 1898-1900; BMC admission material 1898; photographs (1902 basketball team and room); letter from M. Carey Thomas: "Elizabeth Congdon: please don't put your milk outside the window"; May Day 1900 material; Princeton memorabilia, including dance cards 1901-1902, sports clippings, and campus songs; newspaper clippings of Bryn Mawr students putting out fire at Professor Scott's house (Girl's Fire Brigade of Bryn Mawr); and handwritten notes from Mary Gwinn. Volume 2 covers Congdon's senior year (1901-1902), and contains calling cards; telegrams from her Princeton boyfriend; programs from the Bryn Mawr class play and musical recital 1901-1902; a program from the Princeton Glee, Banjo and Mandolin Clubs Performance 1902; clippings regarding the 1902 Denbigh fire; and the Bryn Mawr Commencement program 1902. Congdon's scrapbook evidences the busy social life of a Bryn Mawr student at the turn of the 20th century. In addition to the Bryn Mawr memorabilia, this scrapbook also documents many Princeton and U-Penn events. It is interesting as a record of the sort of inter-collegiate social life a Bryn Mawr student could have if she were so inclined.

The scrapbook covers the years 1904-1908, and contains characteristic Bryn Mawr memorabilia: programs, invitations, BMC-related clippings, some SGA-related materials, etc. The scrapbook consists of one volume. It contains a wide variety of material related to Bryn Mawr, including 2 pages of newspaper photos from 1910 covering President Taft's at Bryn Mawr's Commencement; hand-drawn class play programs from 1904-1906; calling cards and place cards; a newspaper article about William Standen, the "Lantern Man", who escorted girl to and from the train station; a handwritten song about going to the Presidential Inauguration of Theodore Roosevelt, 1905; the 1905 SGA Constitution and SGA resolutions; SGA decisions of the executive board, 1903; the May Day program, ticket, play programs, newspaper photos and clippings, 1906; commencement program from June 1906; a hand-drawn card with poem about being Treasurer of Self-Government; and hand-drawn valentines, with one that says "A Glance into the Future," rejecting different types of men. The scrapbook contains very little material that is not either contained in other scrapbooks or existing in more accessible form elsewhere in the Archives. However, the material within the volume has been carefully presented and preserved. Congdon's scrapbook is, if not one of the more unique ones, certainly one of the more attractive.

Description and contents:

The Edith Dabney scrapbook houses the one volume scrapbook of Edith (Ford) Dabney, Bryn Mawr class of 1903. The scrapbook, which primarily consists of material from 1899-1903, is extremely dense and consists primarily of personal correspondence and notes/poems/signs etc. from friends. However, it also contains quite a few unique photographs and gives a broad view of undergraduate life at Bryn Mawr. The scrapbook is comprised of one volume. It contains many programs for plays, both during and after Dabney's time at Bryn Mawr. It also has a programs from the 1900 May Day and 2 Glee and Mandolin Club programs. Some notable photographs include pictures of campus buildings (including the old gym, where the campus center now stands), lantern night, scenes from "The Adventure of Lady Ursula" and "The Quest of the Lantern," scenes from May Day Places (1900), graduation (1903?), basketball, and candids of students. Some other items of interest are two notes from M. Carey Thomas to Dabney in her capacity as SGA President, some class songs and cheers, a pamphlet about the decision to hold May Day 1900, speeches made by Dabney for SGA, and a copy of the Honor Code. Dabney majored in History and served as SGA President from 1902-03. The scrapbook is particularly notable for the large number of photographs included, which appear to have been taken by Dabney herself, and the sheer volume of memorabilia. It would be of use to anyone interested in early Bryn Mawr history, SGA history, and photographs of Bryn Mawr.

The scrapbook, which spans 1932 to 1933, is small and mostly photographs taken at Bryn Mawr and during Fairbank's vacations. The scrapbook consists of one volume. Some highlights of the book are 4 photos of Lucy Fairbank at Bryn Mawr (in dorm and at graduation); newspaper clipping of Lucy Fairbank at May Day (1930s); 2 photographs of tennis match at BMC; programs from plays in Philadelphia, New York, 1932-33; notes from friends 1932-33; newspaper clipping featuring a photo of the Princess of China being interviewed by Bryn Mawr student 1933; newspaper clipping featuring impressions of inauguration day 193; photographs of Washington DC; and photographs from summer as camp counselor in Wisconsin 1933.

This scrapbook gives a good idea of social life outside of Bryn Mawr in 1932-33. The photographs are well labeled and the scrapbook itself is in excellent condition. It should be noted that a lovely picture of Fairbank in costume for a May Day play in 1932 is in the Bryn Mawr College Photo Archives and on Triptych.

The Elizabeth M. Fauvre (Owen) scrapbook houses the one volume scrapbook thought to have been created by Elisabeth M. Fauvre, Bryn Mawr class of 1919. The donor is unknown, but the album is presumed to be the property of Fauvre because of initials found taped to inside of a mortarboard in poor condition. The scrapbook consists of one volume. The scrapbook contains very good examples of professional photography for dramatic productions by this class. There are also some miscellaneous photos mounted on paper that appear to have been used for reunions. The scrapbook and its contents are in good condition. It would be of value to those interested in Bryn Mawr circa 1915-1919.

The Rebecca Fordyce (Gayton) scrapbook contains the one volume scrapbook of Rebecca Fordyce, Bryn Mawr class of 1916. The scrapbook details Fordyce's years at Bryn Mawr, from 1912 to 1916, with the bulk of the material being from 1912 to 1913. The scrapbook is comprised of one volume. It contains the usual memorabilia, such as notes from friends, school dance memorabilia, and various official BMC materials. Notably, the scrapbook contains several "sensational" newspaper articles from the time period regarding Bryn Mawr, as well as BMC directories, as well as some articles and notes dealing with the 1913 flood in Youngstown, Ohio. It also contains a very small amount of memorabilia from a trip to Panama in 1913. Some other items of interest are the 1912 and 1914 Finding Lists; the 1916 Graduation program; the 1916 class song; a syllabus from 1st year English Literature (1912-13); a photo of Taylor; envelop of clippings re: May Day '14; and a piece of crepe paper decoration and two tiny stockings from a dorm Christmas party. Fordyce's scrapbook primarily consists of typical Bryn Mawr memorabilia, but as noted above, there are some unique elements. This book is fragile, but able to be used casually. Its assortment of materials would be of value to those interested in Bryn Mawr during the early twentieth century.

Carey Thomas speaking from Deanery, last day of classes, 1910.

Noteworthy material includes: a calendar from Colgate and Co. 1909; several drawings, including hand-drawn cards and invitations; a 1902 guide to field hockey written by Constance Applebee; musical programs from New York, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia 1908-1909; Bryn Mawr college exams 1908-1909; admission materials; Bryn Mawr College Information for Students; Theodore Roosevelt photo pin; hand-written lyrics to a song about suffrage; and the commencement invitation and program, 1909.

The Jane Haines scrapbook contains the one volume scrapbook of Jane Haines, Bryn Mawr College class of 1891. The scrapbook, which ranges from 1888-1930s, contains a large volume of personal memorabilia.

The scrapbook consists of one volume. The most noteworthy feature of this scrapbook is the large number of quite beautifully handwritten entries including class-related songs (scores for many also written in; note esp. Pallas Athena) and the script of "The Princess." Haines also includes quotes—either overheard, attributed, or specious—from M. Carey Thomas (as English lecturer) and various professors, including Shorey and Andrews. There is also a sketch of the "character of Dr. Andrews—guessed by a survey of his countenance." The scrapbook also contains many informational booklets from later Bryn Mawr years, mainly the 1920s.

The Jane Haines scrapbook is interesting for the wide timespan that it covers. Unlike most of the other scrapbooks in the Bryn Mawr Collection, this scrapbook includes materials from far beyond Haines' college years. The scrapbook binding is fragile, but the pages and items are in good condition.

Scope and Contents

The Alice B. Hammond scrapbook consists of the one volume scrapbook of Alice B. Hammond, Bryn Mawr College class of 1898. The scrapbook is undated, and consists primarily of photographs. The scrapbook consists of only one volume, which is about half-full of materials. Inside are photographs of Bryn Mawr buildings and scenery, most of which appear to have been taken considerably later than the dates of Hammond's attendance at Bryn Mawr would indicate. They are small amateur photographs of fairly good quality, many of winter scenes. Because the photographs within this scrapbook are undated, it may not be of use to a researcher hoping to study visual materials from a precise era. However, the photos are of good quality and would be of interest to those with a casual interest in older photos of Bryn Mawr College.

The Elizabeth Anna Harlan scrapbook houses the scrapbook and some other ephemera of Elizabeth Anna Harlan, Bryn Mawr College class of 1909. The collection ranges from 1904-1909.

The collection consists of a one-volume scrapbook, a notebook from an English Church Architecture class, and other ephemera contained in loose folders. The scrapbook is a form-scrapbook with places for students to fill in information about their own college. Very little is personally filled in, but the scrapbook contains pre-written statistics, poems [Wellesley and Smith Colleges], college mottoes, colors, cheers, etc. The notebook contains many cyanotypes of churches. The ephemera included consists of newspaper clippings of May Day 1908; a rolled scroll program from Medea and miscellaneous BMC programs 1904-1906; commencement program and memorabilia from 1909; May Day postcards from 1906; and 1909 class stationery.

Although little is personally filled in the scrapbook, the pre-written content gives a general picture of how women's colleges in particular were viewed at the time. The ephemera included is typical Bryn Mawr memorabilia; however, the notebook from Harlan's English Church Architecture class is a unique piece and might be of value to those interested in the specific classes offered by the college in the early twentieth century.

This scrapbook is not remarkable for any one feature, but provides a general and fairly well-rounded picture of the life of the College. It is quite fragile, so might not be ideal for general use.

The Lois Linn Killough Buss scrapbooks houses the two scrapbooks of Lois Killough, Bryn Mawr class of 1947. The bulk of the material in Volume 1 is from Killough's Bryn Mawr career, from 1943-1947. Volume 2 contains material from 1947 only.

The collection consists of two volumes. Much of the first scrapbook is devoted to vacations taken during Killough's time at Bryn Mawr, and much of what is directly related to the College consists of clipped magazine articles which, if somewhat impersonal, do give a very interesting view of the media's perception and presentation of Bryn Mawr in the late '40s and (it appears) early '50s. Volume 2 consists of materials from Spring Break '47 and Graduation. Both scrapbooks are meticulously captioned.

This collection seems valuable mostly as a record of the possibilities for social life for Bryn Mawr students during the late forties. It would be of value to those interested in Bryn Mawr's history during this time period, especially those interested in the vacations of students.

The Eva Levin Milbouer photo album contains the scrapbook pages of Eva Milbouer, Bryn Mawr college class of 1933 and daughter of Bertha Szold, Bryn Mawr 1895. The album is from circa 1929-1933, and is largely student photographs. It provides insight into the student life on Bryn Mawr's campus in the early 30s.

The photo album is comprised of 10 loose double-sided pages. It largely contains student photographs, showing student athletics, academics, and scenes from the Freshman Show. About half of the scrapbook is dedicated to photographs from May Day 1932. Additionally, there are some caricatures of professors. Every photograph has been labelled.

This photo album provides a mixture of candids and posed pictures. It would be most helpful for those interested in May Day, and the theater tradition at Bryn Mawr. Materials related to Milbouer's classes, included exams, class notes, and notebooks, are also kept in the College Archives in a separate collection.

The Marie Leyendecker Cashel scrapbook houses the one volume scrapbook of Marie Leyendecker, Bryn Mawr class of 1944. The scrapbook roughly covers the years 1937 to 1944. It contains a great deal of material detailing the social life of an active high school and college age young woman—dances, teas, parties, theater, restaurants, outings in Pennsylvania, and NYC.

The scrapbook consists of one volume. Much of the material dates from Leyendecker's high school years at Pelham Manor, NY, during the late 1930s. There is also some material relating to WWII: a "War Map of the World," campus reaction to Pearl Harbor and particular movements of marine units. Related specifically to Bryn Mawr, there is a letter from the College regarding Leyendecker's acceptance (as well as one from Smith); poems re: life at Bryn Mawr; course cards (1940-42); playbills; dance cards; "Order of Procedure for Freshmen, 1940-41;" SGA booklet (1940-41); BMC handbook (1940-41); Freshman Show flower cards, booklet from the inauguration of K. McBride as President (1942), and "Wilkie for President" group on campus. Of special interest, perhaps, is an autographed photo of Guy Lombardo; a playbill from "International Casino" autographed by Milton Berle; and a variety of political pins.

The scrapbook contains some of the typical Bryn Mawr memorabilia, but also contains a great deal of material that is not found in other scrapbooks. It would be of use to a study of how WWI affected college campuses. However, the scrapbook is too fragile for use by researchers or for exhibition. Some of the items in the scrapbook may be of interest for exhibition, and could be removed.

Description and contents:

The Elizabeth Yarnall Maguire scrapbook contains the one volume scrapbook of Elizabeth Maguire, Bryn Mawr class of 1913. The scrapbook consists of materials from 1908-1913 and mostly contains Bryn Mawr memorabilia. It offers a valuable view into the social life and traditions of Bryn Mawr students during the early 20th century.

The scrapbook consists of one volume, the materials within which have been organized by student year. The scrapbook contains notes from friends, small memorabilia from plays, dinner, and large campus events, and professional photographs. There are also clippings from the College News, including a few articles on the changing nature of Rush/Parade Night. The scrapbook has a comprehensive collection of mostly hand-drawn name/toast cards from student dinners. Though each entry often has detailed notes accompanying it, the handwriting can be difficult to read sometimes. The scrapbook also has a great deal of May Day material.

This scrapbook is well-organized and contains a representative assortment of Bryn Mawr memorabilia. This scrapbook sheds light on not only the standard social practices for young women of the day, but also the complex and mutable Bryn Mawr-specific events and traditions. For those interested in Elizabeth Maguire, a member of prominent Yarnall and Maguire families, Maguire's family papers are also housed in the Archives.

The Helen Sturgis scrapbook contains the one volume scrapbook of Helen Sturgis, Bryn Mawr College Class of 1905. The scrapbook, which covers Sturgis' first two years at Bryn Mawr (1901-1903), mostly contains personal memorabilia.

The scrapbook is housed in one volume. There are many calling cards and invitations as well as a great deal of personal correspondence. Sturgis wrote either in her scrapbook or on paper a number of poems about her fellow classmates, many of them in limerick form. There are a few pieces of memorabilia related to the Class of '05 and some unique hand-drawn pictures. A small article on "College Girls and Marriage" is also included. There are many items about campus activities, including the Christian Union, as well as floor plans for many of the college buildings.

This scrapbook offers an eclectic mixture of materials that is quite distinct from the usual Bryn Mawr memorabilia. It would be of value to anyone interested in early Bryn Mawr history, especially those curious about college activities, college buildings, and popular perceptions of women attending college.

The Bertha Szold (Levin) scrapbook contains the two volume scrapbook of Bertha Szold, Bryn Mawr class of 1895. The first scrapbook covers Szold's freshman and sophomore years, from 1891-1893, while the second scrapbook covers Szold's junior and senior years, from 1893-1895. The scrapbooks were arranged by Szold's daughter-in-law, Alexander Lee Levin '33, and primarily contain typed transcripts of letters written by Szold to her family.

The scrapbooks are housed in two volumes. Volume 1 contains materials from Szold's freshman and sophomore years. Volume 2 contains materials from Szold's junior and senior years.

Volume 1 contains typed transcripts of letters to family in Baltimore from October 1891-April 1893. These letters concern classes, commuting to Bryn Mawr from Philadelphia, social life, class play performances, Lantern Night, English lectures by Miss Thomas, attending lectures and plays, professors, Radcliffe (the Harvard Annex), college expenses, and field trips. Additionally, it contains other Bryn Mawr memorabilia, like admission materials; bills for tuition, rooms, and books; newspaper clippings regarding Bryn Mawr and women's colleges, etc. Volume 2 of the scrapbook contains typed transcripts of letters to family in Baltimore from October 1893-March 1895. These letters are on such topics as: an advising meeting with M. Carey Thomas; academics; social life; suffrage (a lecture on Social Reform in England); the gymnasium; resignation of Dr. Rhoads; college pranks; campus job (Postmistress of Radnor Hall), and oral exams. As with the first volume, this scrapbook also contains various Bryn Mawr memorabilia, including class play programs from 1894-1895; two letters from Mary (Mamie) Gwinn; photos of Bryn Mawr students in gowns; and a commencement program.

These scrapbooks, prepared well after Bertha Szold's college years by her daughter-in-law, are extremely well-preserved and well-organized. The amount of correspondence they contain is unusual for a scrapbook and provides helpful context for the memorabilia. These scrapbooks would be of use to those interested in the construction of the Bryn Mawr gymnasium, the transition period between James Rhoads and M. Carey Thomas; and the academic and social life of a Bryn Mawr student during the late 1900s.

The Mary "Tip" Thurman scrapbook contains the one volume scrapbook of Mary Thurman, Bryn Mawr College class of 1919. The scrapbook contains materials from the four years during which Thurman was a student at Bryn Mawr, from 1915-1919. It consists primarily of correspondence and newspaper clippings.

The scrapbook is housed in one volume, which consists mainly of materials and correspondence relating to class play performances and memorabilia from inter-class events. It contains many letters and notes regarding preparations for welcoming freshman (from Thurman's sophomore year) and planning play performances. Materials also concern WWI's effect on Bryn Mawr's campus—mainly through newspaper clippings—the Bryn Mawr farm, and comics regarding female college students, including one detailing Bryn Mawr's short hair fad. Some other notable materials include: letters and a notebook concerned with 1919's Sophomore Show (apparently some members of the class found it immoral, and there were problems with the cost of the scripts); letters concerning the great lengths to which Mawrters have gone to steal the Freshman Parade Night Song; and a number of letters from incoming freshman, including Fumi Uchida. Some of the correspondence is difficult to understand sans context, but an explanation has been provided in the form of Thurman's speech at the 50th reunion of her class. Unfortunately, it is unclear where this speech currently resides.

Thurman's scrapbook is a large and lively volume that paints a striking picture of both world and campus events. It would be of most value to anyone interested in the way in which Bryn Mawr was affected by World War I, student life, Bryn Mawr traditions, the Bryn Mawr farm, and, to a lesser extent, the 1918 flu pandemic and women's suffrage.

The Edith Wetherill scrapbook houses the one volume scrapbook of Edith Wetherill, Bryn Mawr class of 1892. The scrapbook is very large and contains materials from 1888-1934, both well before and after Wetherill attended Bryn Mawr. The scrapbook primarily consists of photographs and newspaper clippings, giving a very comprehensive vision of Bryn Mawr from the 1890s well into the 1900s.

The scrapbook is housed in one large volume. Wetherill included many hand-written sections of poems, lectures, lyrics, and quotations from friends and Bryn Mawr faculty. Newspaper clippings concern a large number of Bryn Mawr College and women's education related events, as well as wedding announcements and obituaries of a variety of people connected to the College. The scrapbook also has a comprehensive covering of class songs and reunions of the class of 1892 after graduation. Particularly remarkable is the enormous number of photographs contained in this scrapbook, most of which are large, of excellent quality, and record images of Bryn Mawr theatrical productions and the class of 1892. There are a great number of casual photographs, as well as numerous portraits. Many of the photographs are the same group of students throughout various years, and there are many photos of dorm rooms.

This scrapbook is a unique volume that provides a visual history of Bryn Mawr throughout the 1890s and into the 1900s. Almost anyone of note during this time period in Bryn Mawr's history is likely mentioned in the scrapbook, including M. Carey Thomas, James Rhoads, Ume Tsuda, Charlotte Angas Scott, etc. It would be of value to anyone interested in Bryn Mawr's early history.
