Biographical Sketch

Eleanor Edmunds Reeves attended the Drexel Institute of Art, Science, and Industry from 1931 to 1934. She began the four-year Home Economics course before moving to the Institute’s two-year Secretarial course in 1932. Formerly of Cape May, N.J., Reeves was an active member of the YWCA at Drexel. She had a broad range of interest in the Institute and saved clippings which pertained to sports, theater, ROTC, and class officer notifications. The scrapbook gives no hint of her future plans, family, or prospective occupation once she graduated.

Scope and contents note

The collection consists of Eleanor Edmunds Reeves’s scrapbook, which dates approximately from 1930-1934. Ms. Reeves attended the Drexel Institute of Art, Science, and Industry during those years.

The scrapbook contains newspaper clippings, which document various Drexel sporting and social events, and ephemera such as train tickets, advertisements, and registration cards. The scrapbook also includes correspondence from several “Little Sisters” (incoming freshmen) who were assigned by the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) to Ms. Reeves for an introduction to the campus, and a few Institute records, such as her registration cards and an infirmary bill.

Original order has been maintained where apparent. The pages of scrapbooks have been removed from binding and individual pages placed in folders.
