Letters, Dorothy Foster (March - April 1904)

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 8

Scope and Contents

Folder 8 contains letters from March 6th 1904 to April 23rd 1904, written from Dorothy Foster to her mother. Dorothy, in recounting her experiences with plays, operas, and concerts such as that of Strauss and Wagner, shows her true affinity for theater that would lead to her career studying and teaching Reconstruction and Shakespearian Drama. Her descriptions are precise, her criticisms well-articulated in a way that connotes a serious passion and talent for speaking of theater. This talent continues into her discussion of on campus affairs, with her descriptions of plays performed on campus, of the European Fellowship dinner and ensuing skits parodying professors. This series of letters provides an interesting look at theater and its relation to Bryn Mawr students, both as a pastime to attend and an art to perform.
