Alden Library’s Curator of Manuscripts Doug McCabe recently spoke with Digital Initiatives Coordinator Janet Carleton about the life of Ohio University’s first alumna Margaret Boyd on WOUB. The discussion was part of WOUB’s Conversation’s From Studio B show in which volunteer hosts discuss issues of importance to the local community.
Boyd kept a diary during her senior year in 1873, which the library Tweeted from the @MaggieBoyd1873 Twitter account during 2012. Boyd and her diary will be the focus of the upcoming Founder’s Day celebrations. Stay tuned for more information about this event or check out our series of posts about Boyd and her OHIO legacy.
