[Spelman College:] Campus Mirror. Commencement Issue. Volume XX. 1944 Number 8.


Charming commencement issue from this Atlanta, Georgia college, the oldest private historically Black liberal arts college for women.

This issue of the The Campus Mirror—“The Students’ Own Publication”—documents the Spelman Class of 1944. It shows their portraits and presents capsule summaries of their college careers. A few leading faculty members are highlighted as are the class superlatives (e.g. “Most Pleasant,” “Best Singer,” “Most Scientific,” etc.), club and activity reports, Class Poem, The Ivy Oration, undergraduate class photos, etc.—many of the typical elements of a yearbook.

Also includes editorials, ads, and some news of the nearby all-male Morehouse College with which Spelman was affiliated as part of the Atlanta University Center.
