notesSPRING QUEEN-ING: Presiding over a 1920s-era Spring Day, a May Queen and her court demonstrate the pageantry of a tradition that began on the Prince Street Campus in the 1910s. Later part of Moving Up Day ceremonies for the College for Women, the tradition featured the crowning of a senior woman who was “attended” by a court of fellow students. Recognize anyone?
