                                her class. The scrapbook contains materials from 1919-1921. The
                                majority of the scrapbook is made up of letters, notes, postcards,
                                photographs, and programs mostly relating to Elon College.
                                Specifically, there are quite a few letters from friends and her
                                husband, Howard “Hardy” Scott Hardcastle. Moreover, there are a few
                                pages with postcards depicting Yale University campus buildings and
                                scenes, as well as some photographs from Yale football games. H.S.
                                Hardcastle graduated from Yale Divinity School in 1922. The programs
                                included in the scrapbook are primarily from the three Literary
                                Societies at Elon College, as well as the freshman-sophomore debate
                                and commencement. There are programs from choral society events and
                                the Beta Omicron Beta society. In addition to the programs, there
                                are quite a few hand-made craft items and cut-outs, such as cats and
                                witch hats for Halloween and turkey’s for Thanksgiving. Many
                                newspaper clippings can also be found within this scrapbook. During
                                the time Mary attended Elon, students were required to obtain
                                permission from the Dean of Women or the Dean of Men to leave campus
                                and there are quite a few Dean’s permit slips granting Mary
                                permission to travel off campus. Two pages of the scrapbook document
                                daily events in which Mary participated. There are quite a few
                                photographs in the scrapbook that show Elon students on campus (some
                                wearing uniforms), as well as a variety of campus scenes. Most of
                                the photographs are labeled. Specifically, there are pictures of
                                West Dormitory, the water tower, the old well near Whitley
                                Auditorium, the Old Main Administration Building, the senior oak
                                tree, the Elon train station, and downtown Elon. Other photographs
                                include images of baseball players, football games, track events,
                                women playing tennis, female students in formation that show the
                                letters SATC (Student Army Training Corp), and students from the
                                domestic science department. A picture of the first Japanese student
                                at Elon, Toshio Sato, can be found in this scrapbook. Some non-Elon
                                related photographs include pictures of female students camping in
                                the woods, hiking trips to Ossipee, and waterfalls near Ossipee,
                                North Carolina. Mary Margaret Miller Hardcastle was the daughter of
                                Mr. and Mrs. J.S. Miller of Luray, Virginia. She married Howard
                                Scott Hardcastle (class of 1919 and former president of the Southern

                                Delaware, on August 28, 1922. After married, they lived in Defiance,
                                Ohio for a few years where H.S. Hardcastle was a professor of
                                Religious Education at Defiance College. They had two children, June
                                and Howard Scott, Jr. Over the years they lived various places in
