Subject: women's history program
Please forgive me for posting something off the topic of libraries per se,
but this item may appeal to those with an interest in the history of women's
education at the collegiate level. Athens College, with its origins in
1822, was one of the earliest institutions of higher education for young
women in the South. Men were not admitted until the 1930s, and not in any
great proportion until after World War Two. On Monday, March 11, in a
program celebrating Women's History Month, Athens State University will have
a panel discussion featuring female graduates from the 1930s as speakers.
The program will begin at noon and it will be in the ballroom of the student
center building, and there is no charge. These octogenarian women have
lively personalities and can be counted on for colorful recollections.
Please e-mail me if you would like to attend and I can send you directions
and further details.
