Description

Alice Virginia Alice Virginia “Ginnie” Kellam attended the State Normal School for Women in Harrisonburg, Virginia between the years of 1923 and 1925. Contained within her scrapbook are cards and letters from friends and family, newspaper clippings, class schedules, a tourist brochure for the Beautiful Caverns of Luray No. 20, and various student documents. Of particular interest is the “Freshman Training Examination” that Alice included, a quiz that tested students on their knowledge of school rules and protocol.

Originally from Cheriton, Virginia, during her time here Kellam was a member of the Alpha Literary Society, the Choral Club, the Racquet Tennis Club, the Athletic Association, and the YWCA. Her inscription in a yearbook reads, “Of softest manner, unaffected mind, Lover of peace, and friend of humankind.”
