Dean Meredith Begins Outlining the Changes She Will Make at Dickinson as the Dean of Women

Letter
Date: 
August 12, 1919

In her letter to President Morgan dated August 12, 1919, Dean Meredith formally accepts the position of Dean of Women after being freed from her contract at the Woodbury School. She immediately begins to discuss the changes she hopes to make at Dickinson College as the new Dean of Women. Her plans include turning an old chapel into a gymnasium for women and turning a room into her office so she can watch the women come and go. She also discusses supplies for the women's dorm as well as the staff at Metzger Hall. Dean Meredith closeds the letter by expressing her hope that individuals such as Miss. Ege (a staff member in Metzger) will help with the transition.
