For more than 40 years, horses were an important part of life at Meredith. Perhaps these students were members of the popular Hoof Print Club. Note the background of the photo: Johnson Hall with massive stone steps (they were removed in 1956).

The first horse was brought to Meredith in 1943 by a homesick freshman. Soon there were five horses, and an equitation program began.  Popularity peaked in the mid-1960s when about 40 horses, with names such as Silver Mac, Flashing Challenger, and Spitfire, lived on campus in a large stable-barn complex with interior and exterior riding rings. By the late 1980s, student interest was low and Meredith discontinued the program.

For many years, former Meredith staff members B. J. Yeager, ’47, and Lois Renfrow led trips to New York City during spring break. These mid-to-late 1960s students are dressed, packed and ready for adventure. According to the November 17, 1966 student newspaper, the group will “fly to New York via Eastern Airlines on March 23. Reservations have been made at the Manhattan Hotel where the group will stay until March 28. During their stay the girls will attend several Broadway plays, eat at famous restaurants, shop, and participate in sightseeing excursions.”

On Friday November 19, 2010 a group of 46 Meredith alumnae and guests will depart for a three day trip to NYC.
