Description
Collection contains one scrapbook, 1914-1916, two lab notebooks, 1916, and one diary, 1915. The scrapbook documents her student life and includes invitations, dance cards, calling cards of fellow students, tickets, programs, clippings, and a few letters received. The notebooks are from lab experiments in a psychology course on such topics as muscle control, visual imagery, reaction time, memory, subjective rhythm, uncontrolled associations (linguistic), and word building. The diary contains entries from January into April and discusses her classes, social life (including the Stanford custom of "queening"), sorority matters, and other daily events.
Background
