Date of Accession12 December 2012
Archivist NoteFormer archivist, Ferne Baldwin, collected articles about Manchester students receiving various honors. This assortment of clippings was kept in the Archives. During the Fall of 2012 - Kelley Brenneman, student worker in the Archives, organized these clippings and developed lists of scholarships and students. Kelley's lists are organizational tools that document the information saved in Ferne's materials only and do not summarize ALL scholarships given or awards received during Fern's time of collection. Jeanine Wine utilized these lists when arranging the pages of accession 12 December 2012.
