Margaret Bright Doll Collection
Since 1936, the Meredith senior class has presented the Meredith College Alumnae Association with a doll on Class Day. Alumnae from classes before 1936 prepared dolls to complete the chronology. Early dolls were dressed in the styles of Class Day dresses, while more recent dolls wear the day-to-day fashions of their classes.
In 1991, to commemorate the centennial of the College's charter, a doll in the style of 1891 was prepared to stand beside the 1991 class doll.
Jo Ann Williford, '75, observed, "Each class adds its own unique chapter to this visual history of Meredith College."
