Archives welcomes high school students

July 13, 2011

This week 9 high school girls are engaging with undergraduate students from the 1880s, 1890s and 1910s through letters, journals, diaries, scrapbooks and photograph albums located in the Smith College Archives.  These young women are part of the summer program “Exploring New England.”  Working with professor Susan van Dyne, they are learning what it was like to be a young woman on an educational adventure in the early decades of the College.  The Archives is proud to work with professor van Dyne in exposing these students to some of the wonderful resources available to all researchers in the Smith College Archives.
