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.
