A big “Thank You” to all the alums that stopped by our History Harvest table Reunion Weekend. It was great to meet many of you and hear stories of your days at Mary Washington.
With your help, Angie and I were able to add some great new materials to the University’s archival collections where they will be preserved for future researchers to use in their research of UMW’s history and traditions. Plus, as you browsed through our digitized online collections, several of you were able to help us identify alumni in the photographs. Shout out to Lisa Perdue, ’87!
Here’s an early peak at just a few of the newly donated treasures from Reunion Weekend.
Rhonda Graves, ’82 brought Audrey Wood, ’40’s album from 1937 for us to photograph. Wood was from Hampton, Virginia and the Assistant Editor of the 1939 Battlefield. Check out her caption for Monroe Hall, “The Study Hard Building”.
One of Audrey’s friends wearing her goat insignia. Go Goats!
Whitney P. Shelton, ’97 shared an entire CD of great photos!
And in conclusion, here’s a photo of Vicki Sprague Ravenel, ’77 in the 1975 campus production of You Can’t Take it With You.
Again thanks to all the alumni who shared their memories and made our History Harvest such a great event. See you next June at Reunion Weekend 2018!
