KIRKUS REVIEW

All alumnae of the past two decades have known Miss Raymond in one capacity or another, and this little book has in it something of her own quaint humor and vitality, her loyalty to the college and her astounding memory of individuals and events. Memories and anecdotes from 1865, when as a child of four, she went there with her father, the president of the college, to the time of her own graduation in 1883. Many college figures of the past are brought back to life as personalities. The book has a fragrance of the past, and has double appeal to her contemporaries and those who have known her in her connection with the college in these more recent years.
