Miss Constance M. K. Applebee, who had earlier in 1901 introduced field hockey to America at a seminar at Harvard, spent a week at the college, giving instruction in the sport. Vassar was the first college to employ Miss Applebee, who was director of outdoor sports at Bryn Mawr from 1904 until 1926 and who, in 1922, helped found the United States Field Hockey Association.
