The Ellen Sahlin '13 file

Filled with personal memorabilia collected by a Dana Hall student from 1913, this file gives historians a rare glimpse into student life during a transitional period in history. Filled with personal photos, a report card, and even a love letter, this collection raises many questions. In what ways did Ellen Sahlin reflect or challenge prevailing values of the day? Was she a holdover of the Victorian woman, a Progressive reformer of her day, or prelude to the 1920's flapper?

Here is a lesson relating to this collection.

special hanks to Jess Ngo '05 and Annie Yang '05 for digitizing much of this collection.
