Dean Meredith Prohibits Female Students from Attending the Leap Year Dance

Letter
Date: 
circa 1920

In a letter to President Morgan, Dean Meredith explained how she prohibited the women of Dickinson College from attending the Leap Year Dance. According to the letter, the dance was not held on Dickinson College's campus and was in the evening. For these reasons, Dean Meredith opposed the event. In the end, Miss. Mildred Conklin (Class of 1920) spoke with the women and they decided not to go and hold to the rules of the Student Government. Dean Meredith explained that "I like to manage without peremptory ordering if I can but it sometimes takes a lot of patience and talking things over."
