Welcome to UMW, 1950-1959!

My name is Nicole Steck, and I’m a senior at the University of Mary Washington. As part of Dr. Jeffrey McClurken‘s Spring 2012 Women’s History class, groups of students are examining various semesters of the history of UMW, which was a women’s Normal School for much of the twentieth century. My group will be studying UMW in the 1950s; this blog, along with my groupmates’ blogs, will be useful for following our research throughout the semester. I hope you find this site to be useful for following our research!
