Edith Hall Plimpton was born in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, attended the Cambridge School for girls and graduated from Radcliffe in 1896. She taught one year at the Cambridge Latin School and did graduate work at Radcliffe from 1897-1898. In 1898 she married Henry Richardson Plimpton. They had four children and Plimpton's activities were centered in the home and community. She was particularly interested in the Girl Scouts and worked for the program for many years.


These papers consist mostly of printed material collected by Edith Hall Plimpton during college and at the many class reunions and commencements she attended, including her 50th.
