Mount Holyoke Photo album

Here is something a little different: if one of the women in  your family tree studied or taught at Holyoke College in Massachusetts from 1899-1939, you might find a photo (or photos) of her  here. along with photos of the campus, classrooms, events, etc. Most of the students shown attended the college in the 1920's. Thanks to ResearchBuzz for passing this along.
