Mildred P. Smith collection

 Collection 0185-UA

Mildred Pauline Smith graduated from the University of Maryland in 1922 with a degree in Home Economics Education. As an undergraduate, Smith was responsible for organizing the first women's basketball team and was a member of Lambda Tau sorority. She later served on the University of Maryland Alumni Council in the 1940s (as Mrs. Mildred Smith Jones). This collection consists of a scrapbook compiled by Smith that documents her undergraduate years at Maryland and includes newspaper clippings, photographs, postcards, invitations, event programs, dance cards, and issues of the Maryland Alumni News. Also included are two memorabilia items: a leather-bound commencement week program from 1925 and a women's uniform for physical education.
