Waldo Hall Scrapbooks, 1947-1958

Scope and Content Note

The Waldo Hall Scrapbooks consists of two scrapbooks documenting the residents and activities of this women's dormitory at Oregon State College. One of the scrapbooks is for the 1947-1948 academic year and the other documents the 50th anniversary celebration of Waldo Hall in 1957-1958. The 1947-1948 scrapbook consists primarily of newspaper clippings about Waldo Hall residents and their honors and activities. It also includes several dance cards. A group photograph of the residents on the front lawn of Waldo Hall is also included.

The 1957-1958 scrapbook also consists primarily of newspaper clippings. It includes a brochure about the 50th anniversary, an article published in the Oregon Stater alumni magazine about the anniversary, and the names of residents during the 1957-1958 year. Group photographs of couples at the fall 1957 dorm dance and the 1958 spring term dance (with the theme "Easy Street") are part of the scrapbook.

A folder of newspaper clippings from 1952 about Waldo Hall activities and residents is also included in the collection.
