Insight Into the Past Exhibit


The Bainonian women’s literary society had been around for nearly half a century by the year 1923 and was the oldest society for women on campus. They were officially founded as the Bainonian literary society in 1875. The Bainonians, according to the "M" Book, focused on friendship and togetherness.

An article from the Highland Echo about a Bainonian program held to ring in the new school year. This event and others like it were an opportunity for new girls to make friends and become acquainted with the campus community.

As you can see in this photo of the ‘22-’23 Bainonian leadership, the fashion and hairstyles of the 1920s were quite different!
