Marcia Lynn Walsh Alumnae Museum

"It is through the past that we come to know the future."

The Marcia Lynn Walsh Alumnae Museum, located in Curtis Hall, opened its doors for the first time for a Reunion in May of 1992 in conjunction with the College's 125th anniversary. It was founded by Marcia Lynn (Root) Walsh ’51 to preserve the history of Cedar Crest College and to foster an appreciation of the history of women. Among the goals of the museum:

  • Collect and preserve memorabilia and other items related to the history of the College
  • Showcase the collection through rotating exhibitions
  • Provide opportunities for student internships
  • Promote an appreciation of the history of women through exhibits of women's fashion and other items

“The Alumnae Museum is a time machine. It lets us travel back to opening night of a Greek play fifty years ago or graduation in 1890 or the wedding of one of our alumnae. Through the imagination and support of Marcia Walsh and other dear friends of the College, the clothes and other treasures of past days come alive and let us relive those sweet earlier times at Cedar Crest.”

President of Cedar Crest College (1989-2006)
