Letters, Dorothy Foster (May 1904)

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 9

Scope and Contents

Written from May 2nd 1904 to May 19th 1904, the final folder of letters from Dorothy Foster to her mother during her time at Bryn Mawr covers her last months at college, and the traditions they entail, including May Day, the Junior Senior Supper with the passing of the Loving Cup, and Commencement. Especially notable is Dorothy’s account of being crowned May Queen on May Day, and the joyous affair that ensues as she and her friends celebrate. In many senses, this folder contains the culmination to the work Dorothy has put in over her time at Bryn Mawr, completing her final exams and receiving recognition for her efforts in both clubs and the class of 1904 as a whole.
