At the 25th annual meeting of the Boston alumnae, President Taylor announced that last June Caroline Swift Atwater ’77 had given the college $25,000 for a new infirmary, in memory of her father, Charles W. Swift, a charter trustee. Mrs. Atwater subsequently gave an additional $25,000, and the building, designed by York & Sawyer in the colonial revival style, was completed later in the year.

The president also thanked Mary Thaw Thompson ’77 and Mary Seymour Pratt ’80, for a gift of $100,000 for a new Chapel.
