Frank Parsons (WLU 1954, Director of Publicity and Assistant to the President) Interview, n.d.


Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The Mame Warren Collection consists of 90 oral history interviews and historic photographs collected for her 1998 book project, 'Come cheer for Washington and Lee University: the University at 250 years!'. Warren conducted interviews with 90 individuals associated with Washington and Lee University, including former faculty, staff, coaches, employees, alumni, and friends. Each interview is boxed uniquely and includes audio cassette recordings, both master and user copies, and their respective paper transcriptions. In preparation for the book, Warren collected W and L related historic photographs and negatives campus-wide and beyond. The photographs are diverse in content, size, and format. The body of the photographic collection is sleeved and stored in multiple three-ring binders. Larger formats are boxed and shelved separately. Some images are framed. While many of the images were used in the book, the collection includes many that were not. The master index of the photographs is available in W and L Special Collections.
