  • Scope and Contents

    The collection consists of three items - a photograph album, book, and newspaper clipping. The photograph album features images of Pacific University during Reeher's time as a student, including activities such as as sports, May Day and theatrical presentations; individual and group views of classmates and faculty; and graduation ceremonies. Some images are identified; most are not. The book, The Home Within the Wilderness was written by Mildred S. Reeher and tells the story of the Reeher family traveling to and settling in Oregon in 1887. The newspaper clipping appeared in the News-Times (Forest Grove) as part of their "Senior Clips" series and featured Reeher and her memories of Pacific University, Forest Grove, and married life.
