Letters, Dorothy Foster Letters, Dorothy Foster (Miscellaneous)
Scope and Contents
Scope Note: Folder 1 contains miscellaneous elements of Foster’s time at Bryn Mawr College, heavily focusing on her academic records. Records such as her official transcript and a journal of courses taken highlight her keen aptitude for studies of English literature and theater, which would continue later into her career. The impersonal approach of her academic records are contrasted by the enclosed draft of her essay “May Day in Oxford: as I went forth one May morning.” The essay provides a lively account of her May Day experiences both at Bryn Mawr and at Oxford, and draws many similarities between events and atmosphere in both locations.
