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.
