Calendar of Official Meetings
Collection Scope and Content Summary
This collection consists of bound volumes—specifically, daily planners for college events. Some of the early calendars belonged to Mabel Foote Weeks, Assistant to the Dean in Charge of Social Organizations. The rest of the planners have no specific creator and are annotated by different hands.
Calendars include events and deadlines at Barnard including addresses to classes, faculty parties, lecture series, sign-up dates for events, registration dates, board meetings, teas, holidays, and meetings of student-run organizations such as the Mortarboard. Additional notes are written in margins and on back pages of the calendars. Invitations to events, reminder notices, and lists of College rules have been placed in the planners as well. Of interest in the collection is a 1942 list of rules delineating when and where it was appropriate for Barnard students to smoke.

The College Calendar of Official Meetings was created as a practical record of events at Barnard by the Office of Social Activities (later called Student Organizations and Office of Student Affairs). Mabel Foote Weeks, as Assistant to the Dean in Charge of Social Organizations, recorded these daily planners until her retirement in 1939.
