Biographical Sketch

In the now defunct position of Dean of Women, the individual who was Dean served as a member of the faculty committees on student housing, student employment, social activities, discipline of women, and sometimes represented these committees in an executive capacity. Female students could seek help in obtaining employment and had to update their employment reports when changes occurred.

Scope and Content

The collection contains the records of the Dean of Women concerning the instruction and behavior of female students of the college. Also contained in this collection are the scrapbooks of the Association of Women Students, Las Leales Honor Society, and the Freshman Honor Society dating from 1928 through 1957. The scrapbooks are in varying condition. Pages have been photocopied as necessary. The scrapbooks have had new back and front boards made to replace deteriorated or missing ones and one of the scrapbooks has been separated into two parts due to its overstuffed nature. Most of the scrapbooks have had their holes reinforced to prevent further deterioration.



The collection is organized into two series: Manuscripts and Scrapbooks.
