Welcome to the world of the Mary Washington College in the 1930′s. With this site, we would like to gain a better understanding of what it was like for the female students here in Fredericksburg in such an important decade. Using the sources in Special Collections at Simpson Library, we hope that our visitors will see what is like socially and academically for the students. Because of the little information that has been saved, it is hard to say what it was like on a day to day basis but instead a more overall look at the world of Mary Washington in the 30′s. On the right of the site are a number of different pages, just click on any of them to get started. Please enjoy your visit to our site and feel free to comment with questions and thoughts!
