Description
Texts of the plays, annual reports on the preparation and completion of the year's activities, and original music composed for the pageant.
Background
Partheneia, an original, open-air pageant or masque presented each spring term, was initiated in 1911 by Miss Lucy Sprague, then dean of women. A competition for a student-written script was held in the previous fall term, the general theme being that of the transition from girlhood into womanhood; 400-500 women took part in the performance.
