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.

Janet McConnell Philips '77 donated four cherished Battlefield yearbooks that belonged to her mother, Barbara Ann Hough ’48.
