    1916 Yearbook returned to college

    I haven't been on here for long, but I hope by now those that have read my posts know that I believe that treasure can come in many shapes and forms and not always made of metal.

    I found this year book in a pile of books and papers that I had won at an auction. It took a little researching because I have a hard enough time pronouncing the name on the front while sober. Eventually I found the college and it was then that I realized that I needed to get this back to them.

    Wilson College was founded in 1869 as a college for women, one of the first in the United States. Sarah Wilson, for whom the College is named, provided the initial gift for the establishment of the College. She was the first living woman in the United States to endow a college for women. http://www.wilson.edu/index.aspx

    Finally this morning as I checked my email, waiting for a MD buddy to show up, I got the email that they had received it:

    James,
    We got the book. Thank-you so much for sending it. We didn't have this edition and it means a lot to us now we have it. Thank-you again for sending it.

    OH, I'm sure those at the college were thrilled to receive that gift from you! Wouldn't it be interesting to know what became of those gals? What did they do with their knowledge?
