The Meredith College Archive and the steering committee for the commemoration of the 125th anniversary of the Meredith College charter are pleased to announce that we have officially launched the 125 Meredith Objects Blog. Inspired by the History of the World in 100 Objects, the purpose of this blog is to share 125 moments of Meredith History leading up to the College’s 125th anniversary on February 27, 2016. Each day, for 125 days, a new object, publication, or photograph from the Meredith College Archive will be highlighted. The ultimate goal of this blog is for readers to have a better understanding of Meredith’s deep-rooted history as a woman’s educational institution, while also taking a peek into the Meredith College Archives collection. Each post will feature a “Learn More” section where you can go to find more information on the selected topics either online or in the college archives. The link to the blog appears below:

We hope that you will find this blog to be both educational and entertaining as we celebrate 125 years of history at Meredith College. Please share this announcement and blog posts with anyone that you feel will enjoy them.
