Description

This letter written by Mabel Lee to Florence McGahey, registrar in the Administration Building, shows how seriously she took her professional position. In the letter, Lee inquires as to why the statement after her name in the University catalog says "In charge of Womens Gymnasium" as if she is a glorified caretaker. She wanted the statement changed to "Chairmen of the Department of Physical Education for Women".
