Historical Note

In 1837, Mary Lyon (1797-1849) founded Mount Holyoke Female Seminary in South Hadley, Massachusetts. It was one of the first institutions of higher education created for women in the United States. In 1893, the institution's name was changed to Mount Holyoke College. In 1929, twenty-five Indianapolis alumnae of the college reorganized their local club, approving a new constitution and calling the group the Indiana Mount Holyoke Club. The club was open to all Holyoke alumnae living within a radius of one hundred miles of Indianapolis and meetings were social gatherings with an emphasis on college news. The club's name was later changed to the Mount Holyoke Club of Indiana.
