Smith women love to return to campus! There are so many Smith alumnae that return, and so few places of accommodation in the Valley, that we have 2 weekends of Reunion fun! We’re now in the beginnings of the 2nd weekend of reunion. The College Archives is pretty busy during these times. This morning I had an alumna from the Class of 1938 donate materials of the class; we’ve pulled together mini-exhibit for the 12 classes that are returning. Saturday afternoon 98 women from the Class of 1953 meet in Alumnae Gymnasium for their class meeting and I will give two talks about what’s in the College Archives and what the Archives is all about! If recent past statistics say anything, the College Archives staff meet, on average, with 40 individuals during our weekend of open hours.
It’s wonderful that so many women care about the history of Smith–and are a part of the history of Smith! We, the staff, look forward to all the opportunities to meet and talk with Smith alumnae!
