Biographical / Historical

The newsletter for women's physical education alumnae began in 1927 in order to share professional and personal information. Editor Kerstin Thorin wrote: "Remember that even if you have left your Alma Mater, you are still a part of it, wherever you are and whatever you are doing." It is of deep interest to the rest of us. Every success is one for us also, and every piece of work, even the smallest, when well done is ever an inspiration." (1927) The newsletter went out each year until 1974, when the Department of Physical Education for Women became part of the Department of Physical Education and Recreation.
