Campus Club Fall Tea

On September 24, 2015, we were honored to host the Campus Club Fall Tea in the Prange Collection.  Founded in 1938, the Campus Club’s purpose is “to unite women of the university community for the promotion of their common interests in intellectual, social and civic affairs.” Its members include faculty, staff, faculty spouses, and alumnae.

For the event, we displayed Prange materials related to women during the Occupation.  The mini-exhibit was divided into the following categories:  Home & Family, Women in Popular Culture, Women’s Magazines, and the Mead Smith Karras Papers (a newly acquired gift collection that documents Karras’s responsibilities for developing and working with U.S. and Japanese officials to carry out Occupation policies on problems affecting women and minor workers).
