Barbara Stevens Wishmeyer served as Dean of Women at Dickinson College from 1959-1967. She created this scrapbook that documents the lives of the first-year female students living in Metzger Hall during the 1962-1963 academic year.  That was the last year that Metzger Hall served as housing for Dickinson students, as it was razed at the conclusion of the Spring 1963 semester.  The scrapbook contains primarily photographs, as well as some newspaper clippings and event programs.  In addition to capturing everyday life, this scrapbook also records orientation, sorority rush, the annual Military Ball, and farewell events marking the closing of Metzger Hall.
