June 10, 1902
After the alumnae luncheon, five alumnae spoke to those who returned for Class Day on women and occupations. Dr. Mary Sherwood ’93 discussed medicine, Helen Hoy ’99 discussed law, Maude Ray ’00 discussed journalism, Mary Root ’78 discussed agriculture and Nancy McClelland ’97 discussed advertising.
Class Day exercises were held out of doors in the afternoon. The juniors marched in, followed by the sophomores, nineteen of whom bore the daisy chain that announced the entry of the Class of 1902, led by Louise Sanford ’02. Class president Theodosia Hadley ’02 gave an address of welcome, and class historians Caroline Sperry ’02 and Nina Eldred ‘02 looked back over the class’s four years at the college.
At the class tree, Lucy Burns ’02 gave the senior charge and gave Matthew Vassar’s spade to Harriette Anderson ’03, who delivered the junior response. The day ended with a glee club concert and the president’s reception.
