Drayer Hall, the first major building built by the college on the Benjamin Rush campus, was also the first building to be constructed with the women of the college in mind. An unidentified newspaper clipping anticipates a successful celebration for the dedication of the women's dormitory. The "celebration will be the first in the long history of the college arranged entirely for honoring Dickinson women." The Women's Day festivities include high ranking guest speakers, a luncheon, the distribution of honorary degrees to "eight outstanding women" by co-ed student sponsors, and tours of the new building.
