Photo of the Week

Each Monday we will be teaming up with Martha Fonville in the Meredith College Archives to bring you a Photo of the Week.  We hope that you will all enjoy this look into our past.

These unidentified students from the 1950s add the finishing touches to their dorm room with matching curtains and bedspreads.
