The Four Scottie Garretson Sisters

Visit McCain Library’s Floor 2 Archives Lobby for the Exhibit,
“The Four Garretson Scotties: Insights Into Agnes Scott College in the 1920s and 1930s and Life Post-Graduation.”

This display will be on view at least until the end of December 2018 to celebrate the reopening of Rebekah Scott Hall and the Woltz-Garretson Room there.

Mary Lillias Garretson ’33 contributed to the renovated space in Rebekah in memory of her parents, Percy Richard and Lillias Painter Garretson, who found a way to send four daughters to college during the Depression. The family shared memorabilia, photographs, reunion write-ups and textbooks for the exhibit.
