She entered Vassar College Sept. 1869, preparatory department, and left on account of her father’s death in April, 1873, and the following October, 1873, she married. The following is a copy of a sketch about her college days written by Fannie Shouse James and found in her desk after her death. Sent to the college by her daughter, Fanny James Egan '04 (Mrs. Louis H. Egan).” The memoir describes entrance exams, course assignments, visitors to the College, professors (especially Maria Mitchell, a favorite instructor), and general college life.
