Orphan Photo #65

Orphan 0065A

This is a photo of Rosamund Hall, who attended Smith College (Northampton, Massachusetts) in 1901.  Despite the name, I wasn’t able to find a conclusive match for her.  It’s hard to say where she was in 1900, although Massachusetts would be a strong possibility.  Additionally, she could have been enumerated as Rosa, Rose, Rosie, etc., making the possibilities endless without a definitive location.

If she’s your relative, contact me!




I'm reading her name as Rosamund. Does the census have her as Rosalund?

Hi Norkio,

You are correct, I just typed it wrong. It's fixed now :)

Could the name be not of the lady but of her dorm or class building?

I agree with ME, it could be the hall she lived in.
