College students--United States--Conduct of life
Diaries, letters, and memoirs
This Student Handbook for 1906-07 includes daily schedule/diary pages, and this copy was filled in with appointments and notes of activities by Ora R. Whitmore (Williams) '07, from Logansport, Indiana. The book was produced for the final academic year of the presidency of the Rev. Dr. Richard Harlan (1901-06). This is the earliest year for which the Lake Forest College Archives has a complete student handbook, or book of campus regulations and aids for academic, social, and other success. Though the book is published by the YMCA of Lake Forest College (see below), it is a handbook for the University, which in addition to the College included Lake Forest Academy (boys/young men) and Ferry Hall (girls/young women), both adjacent preparatory schools then.
Ora R. Whitmore pursued graduate study at the University of California and married Durward S. Williams--who was deceased at the time of the publication of the General Register of Lake Forest College, 1865-1931 (p. 61): http://www.archive.org/stream/generalregistero1931lake#page/186/mode/2up/search/whitmore. According to this same source, at the time of publication she was a teacher in the Shanghai Adventist School, and a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Her address then was 25 Ningkuo Rd., Shanghai, China.
