Incompetent as a Personal Advisor

Incompetent Personal Advisor

In "Suggestions Considered Requisite by the Students of Dickinson College for the Improvement of the College" distributed to faculty and trustees on December 15, 1945, students explain the need for the appointment of a new Dean of Women, calling the Dean of Women Josephine B. Meredith "incompetent as a personal advisor." According to the document, she does not give women students sympathy in personal matters and places them on probation without adequate grounds. The document cites a junior girl who was placed on probation by the Dean of Women and the Dean of the College for an "undesirable attitude."
