These five folders contain material relating to Madeleine Edison's student years at Bryn Mawr College. Madeleine entered Bryn Mawr in September 1906 and left at the end of her sophomore year in June 1908. She continued to maintain an active interest in the college, joining the Bryn Mawr Club, attending numerous class reunions, and remaining in contact with several of her college friends. Folders with documents selected for publication appear with links on the list below.
Bryn Mawr College Transcripts. This folder contains a photocopy of Madeleine Edison's official undergraduate transcript, made from the original in the archives of Bryn Mawr College. The transcript lists courses, along with a number grade for each. There is also an information sheet indicating that Madeleine entered Bryn Mawr with "conditions" in geometry, Latin, and spelling (meaning that she would have to re-take her entrance examinations on those subjects). The sheet also indicates that a certificate of health was submitted by Dr. John Hammond Bradshaw of Orange, New Jersey, and a certificate of character by Helen Walker of Orange.
