FOLLIES OF 1920
THE 1920 ANNUAL OF LEWISBURG SEMINARY
Over 100 Years...
The Follies would become the Saga and the Seminary would become Greenbrier College. Come with us as we flip through some of the pages. Come to the reunion to look at all of it. The annual was dedicated to Dora Mason Biggs, one of the two women who were ever heads of the school. Her daughter, Charlotte Biggs Brewster, is shown later in the Society Section. Some of you may remember her grand-daughter, Tate Brewster Hudson ’52.
"Wisdom and goodness are twin born, One heart must hold both sisters, never seem apart."
The annual had no pictures of faculty. The senior (college sophomores) class was presented with casual photos as shown to the right. In 1920, there were 17 seniors and 161 students in all.
- CLUBS -
There were many organizations - Two Literary Societies, YMCA, Dramatic Club, Art, Lambda Phi, Delta Theta Phi, Phi Delta Phi, Chorus, Big D, and the four shown here. Can you tell which ones is the Southern Club or the Northern Club?
Not only did they have lots of organizations, they had a good time. The write in their history: "When the spring term rolled around the out doors became too inviting for the encouragement of hard study. Perhaps this may account for certain queer happenings, but such things as cutting class, midnight feasts, and the slipping down fire escapes have no place in so sedate and dignified a thing as history."
The Joke Section
This section goes on for 10 pages, but we'll include just a few so you can judge the humor for yourselves!
OMA: Did you know they'd been going together for some time?
OMA: Your feet.
MISS RUPERT: Well, Pat, how are you now?
PAT: Thank you, Miss Rupert. I am better than I was, but I am not as well as I was before I was as bad as I am now.
