1902

Meet Miss 1902:

Dr. Mary Lynch Johnson said that the class members all wore white for Class Day, but the dresses were not all alike. This dress, with long skirt, long sleeves, and high collar, is typical of the style in 1902. The College was chartered in 1891 as Baptist Female University and graduated the first two classes, 1902 and 1903, under that name.  To view the virtual doll gallery online, please click here.  _______________________________________________________________

You and your family are invited to join the Meredith College Young Alumnae for an afternoon tea and doll tour in the Johnson Hall Rotunda on Sunday, April 28th from 2-4pm. The event will begin with a seated tea, which will include light refreshments, followed by a guided tour of the Margaret Bright Doll Collection. A representative from the Meredith College Archives will be present to share the history of the doll collection and answer any questions. Children are encouraged to bring their dolls to share their own stories.

There is no cost for the event, but space is limited, so please RSVP to alumnae@meredith.edu by April 23rd to reserve your seat.  When submitting you RSVP please include the names and ages of your guests!
