Sophie White at Silver Bay

SB Horace Mann Yearbook 1910

Jeremy Butler discovered these images from New York City’s Horace Mann School’s yearbook in 1910 and ’11. His grandmother, Sophie White Wells, is in the back row, far right. The images are from College Day, when each school’s delegation performed a skit or songs for the other YWCA Conference attendees, on the lawn in front of the Inn. Jeremy adds, “Both my grandmother’s and grandfather’s families were heavily involved with the YMCA and YWCA in the early 20th century. In fact, my grandfather, F. C. Wells, went to Beijing as a representative of the YMCA in 1911.”  Thank you, Jeremy!
