Wardman Library Showcases Exhibit of Days Past

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Gathering old black-and-white photos, scrapbooks, dance cards, and other items of memorabilia dating back to the early 1900s, the Palmer Society—Whittier's first women's society—has set up a display at Wardman Library honoring the College's heritage.

"There's so much pride in Whittier College history," Tina Rinaldi, Palmer president said in a recent article. "Being in a society at Whittier College, we're involved in this unique history."

Former Palmer Judy Kraft '60 is one of the alumni who lent personal collections to the display. "I had all these things in a little box," Kraft told the Whittier Daily News. "They bring back all kinds of memories."

The display will be open for viewing through Dec. 18.
