Lucretia Jones McAnney's Resignation in The Dickinsonian

The January 21, 1914 Dickinsonian marks with sadness the resignation of Lucretia McAnney, who held various positions at the college. For the past eight years, McAnney had been in charge of the Department of Oratory. Before her, "there was no Department of Oratory" but she had "gradually built up her department until at the present time there is too much work...[for] one person." Even the former President, Dr. George Edward Reed, remarked fondly that McAnney was "the only woman I have ever met whom I would be willing to place over men as an instructor in forensic work."

Jane Shenton Alumni Questionnaire Response

Jane Shenton, an alumnus from 1911, comments upon the required courses for the 1955 Alumni Questionnaire. Even though at the time Jane Shenton complained about the required courses, looking back she remains grateful for taking courses that were out of her line of interest. She was required to take a year of math, philosophy, two laboratory sciences-biology and either chemistry or physics and political science.

President Morgan to Dean Meredith

President J. H. Morgan writes to the Dean of Women, Josephine Meredith, regarding the revision of the Self-Government rules for the young women at Metzger Hall.

President Morgan's Advice to Dean Meredith

President J. H. Morgan wrote to the Dean of Women, Josephine Meredith, about an instance of "class interference" at Metzger Hall informing her of what her actions should be. The President informs Dean Meredith that an incident of the sophomore and freshman classes terrorizing each other had occurred before, about thirteen years ago, and announced that no such interferences would be allowed. Any young woman who would participate in such events would be considered "Wise to withdraw from the College" because it is in the College's interest to keep up a good reputation.
