Description

This collection contains images of Mary Washington from throughout the 1910s and 1920s. A decade of many changes; It is at this time that we witness the "birth" of the Battlefield Annual in 1913 and the change of the schools name from "State Normal School at Fredericksburg" to "State Teachers College at Fredericksburg". The 1910s and 1920s images portray the styles that are so iconic of that period while capturing the whimsy and excitement of college girls and their adoration for academic achievement.
