This collection is divided into two parts. There are transcripts of alumnae reminiscences of Radcliffe College recorded October 1972-May 1973. Participants of these round table recollections were alumnae and college officers who recorded their memories of the college since, due to the merger/non-merger with Harvard, the college was changing so rapidly. The conversations covered all aspects of Radcliffe's history from 1904 through 1973. They describe student, life, (plays, parties, athletics, academics, and dating patterns), student government, memories of presidents and deans, the experience of Black students, graduate student life, and Harvard faculty and courses.
The second part of the collection consists of short essays about student life requested by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas in July 1968 and written by members of the classes of 1914 through 1965.
