This collection consists primarily of letters, photographs, and academic materials from Gettysburg College in 1922-1926, as well as miscellaneous memorabilia from that time and a small amount of alumni materials. The academic materials include textbooks and lab manuals, mostly from biology and chemistry courses, as well as class notes written by Sipe. While the letters were written during Sipe’s time as a student, they are almost entirely from female friends of Sipe, none of whom appear to have attended Gettysburg College. Most of the photographs are unidentified and lack any sort of date, with the exception of Sipe’s graduation photo and the undated photos of Penn Hall. There are course registration materials, as well as cards and invitations from various events, but with no real focus or theme uniting them. The collection provides some insight into the life of a student at Gettysburg College during the 1922-1926 period, particularly with regard to academics.
