From the Curator:

One of the things that has made this exhibition so much fun to put together was looking through scrapbooks, diaries, and letters home from the earliest years of Bryn Mawr.  We are always interested in adding material on student life to the Archives, and  I would like to invite you to participate in uncovering this part of the College's history, whether you are a member of the class of 1948 or 2011.  If you would like to donate your scrapbooks, photographs, memorabilia, diaries, or letters, we would love to hear from you! Please write us at SpecColl@brynmawr.edu or call 610-526-6576 to talk about sharing your memories.
