This folder contains letters from Catherine Cox to her family, though chiefly to her parents. They detail her experiences at Guilford College. Of note is mention of a crazy man living in the woods (he "sicced" his dog on Catherine and her friends as they were taking a walk. In their attempt to escape they fell through some barbed wire and kept running), basketball games with Elon University, exams, an incident wherein a former student (Edmina Siler) was run over and killed (the student body stood in respectful silence as the body was driven through campus), and the Dolly Madison tablet unveiling. It should be noted that the stationary used is personalized with "YWSGA"(Young Women's Student Government Association) printed at the top, with Catherine Cox listed as president.
