This is a history of the first hundred years of Saint Mary's School for Young Ladies, opened in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 1842. It is an excellent record of the changing fashions in dress, thinking, and customs, and portrays the Saint Mary's girl from the days of bustles to those of sweaters and skirts. The book also contains stories of the Civil War and reconstruction period.

Originally published in 1942.
