Archives Display: Winter Wonderland

Katies have always found ways to have fun during the brutal Minnesota winter. Whether it was organizing a day for tobogganing by Dew Drop pond, or using cafeteria trays as sleds, students kept themselves entertained.

The February display features photos and other items from St. Kate’s Archives, which document these winter amusements. The photo at right shows winter carnival snow queen from 1940, Margaret Bishop, sitting atop her ice throne, with her attendants (from left to right: Beth Sheets, Kathleen Kressbach, Lucille Dickof, Mary Jane Sweeney).

These items will be on display during the month of February on the main level of the St. Paul Library, in the case in front of the video carrels. Stop in to have a look!
