Vassar Songs


Browse the Collection:


The collection of Vassar College song books consist of nine books published between 1881-1940. Together they constitute some 500 pages -- songs written at Vassar, published by Vassar and sung by Vassar students. Some songs, such as the Wentworth/Gow "(Vassar) Alma Mater" are repeated in many if not all of the books, but there is some evidence of title changes, and variations in words or harmonizations, and additional verses. The song books provide a wonderful glimpse into the many activities, concerns, and interests of Vassar students during this time.
