It is she who founded Mount Vernon Semi- nary in 1875. Each successive year in the life of the school has been marked by some enlarg- ing and beautifying of its material conditions or broadening of its methods to keep it abreast of the advancing educational ideas of the day. Yet with all this outward progress there has been no change in the fundamental ideal of our school: i'She conquers all who conquers selff, This ideal, as Mrs. Somers realized many years ago, is the force needed to perpetuate a spirit of truth and courage throughout an aca- demic community. To this spirit as exemplified by Elizabeth Somers we proudly dedicate the final edition of the Cupola. HISTORY GF GU T VERNON SEMINARY "By this time, like one who had set out on his way by night, and travelled through a region of smooth or idle dreams, our history now arrives on the confines where daylight and truth meet us with a clear dawn, representing to our view, though at a far distance true colours and shapesf' Milton There are certain memories that each indi- vidual who has come to Mount Vernon will hold dear for the rest of her life. The history of our school is an adventurous tale of the people who have devoted much of their lives to the growth of the school. We owe our thanks to those whose undaunted dedication will remain immortal in the light of our memories and past experiences. In 1837 Elizabeth jane Eddy was born in Rush County, Indiana. She grew up under fairly difficult conditions and received most of her early education from her own mother. As she gradually developed a desire to become a teacher, her family sent her to Cincinnati Wes- leyan Female College to receive her training. On graduating, she was appointed to a position at Northwestern Female College and later at Pittsburgh Female Seminary. Then fate inter- vened in the person of James Somers, a hand- some young lawyer from Washington, D. C. who, after wooing her, won her and carried her off to the capital as his bride. From this time on, Washington was to be her home. Teaching, however, was still very much in her blood, so that even in the early years of marriage she taught in a neighborhood school. In 1868 Judge Dennis Cooley brought to Mrs. Somers his three little daughters Clara, Minnie and Mary and asked her to teach them and prepare them for Vassar. Similar requests followed in succeeding years and in 1875 a small school for girls was officially founded in Mrs. Somers' home at 204 F Street. This marked the birth of Mount Vernon Seminary. NVithin the period of a few years, the student body had grown rapidly. Before long, the increased enrollment of the school necessitated larger quarters and a new home was found in 1880 at 1100 M Street. There the school grew for thirty-seven years until it held 120 girls. In 1914 Mrs. Somers foresaw that the school would one day need to expand again, and pur- chased a beautiful tract of land on Nebraska Avenue, at that time out in the country. In that year the First World War broke out, but, undaunted, Mount Vernon Seminary started building and moved to its new quarters in 1917 under a new Headmistress, Adelia Cates Hensley. x. , 2141 ' vw, 6 l il ull: ill! ll" lwli ,ill ,. ll Hull . 7. mi H 1? i-..,l..gaf . lu -3. 111 ll I' H nl , ... 5,11 gg ' 1-ll 'IMI 1? , !1:1'1', N' 9.1.5 -,Q "T" :,,"ffg-1 ' ,111 .12 Iw i- 'j-In 'iii-1 ' M il' J J 5 ' " L- 7 ' ' .

'I - an 1100 M Street 119001 In 1925 Mount Vernon was to celebrate its Goldenjubilee. Under the enthusiastic direc- tion of Miss Anne Seymour Ames, alumna ofthe class of 1881 and librarian for forty,years, a chapel in memory of Mrs. Somers was under- taken. The third headmistress, Miss Jean Dean Cole, dedicated this exquisite chapel which to most of us is known as the Navy Chapel. The bell for the chapel was dedicated in honor of Miss Ames and now stands outside Ames Hall with her inscription: 'SF or Trinity-For Liberty -For Truth, and Beauty, Ring ever, O bellf, Miss Cole founded the Alumnae Council, which draws back to campus every year alumnae from all parts of the world. Under her leadership, also, the newly formed Junior Col- lege and the Preparatory School began devel- oping separately. Until then unless a student Finished six years of study at Mount Vernon she did not receive a diploma. New trends in edu- cation dictated the separation into four and two year sections. In the late twenties, Mr. and Mrs. George W. Lloyd arrived to teach at Mount Vernon. In 1937 Mr. Lloyd became president of the school and the following year Mrs. Lloyd became fourth headmistress. The school was flourishing, new buildings had been added. The shadows of war seemed very distant when s Cheney-a Mount Vernon girl of the 1890's.

Air-raid drills, Red Cross Work, nurses, aid training all became part of the school routine. In September 1942 the school reopened with the largest enroll- ment in its history. On October 12th, however, two men representing the United States Navy announced that the Navy planned to take over the school. It seemed inevitable that Mount Vernon would have to close down, but Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd refused to accept this because the school was not theirs. It represented the im- mortality of those who had gone before, the undannted spirit of Mrs. Somers. The students vowed that they would return, even if they had to live in tents. The search for a new school began and, Hnally, twelve unoccupied houses were found in Spring Valley.

Remembering that Mrs. Somers had lent his father the money with which to open the first Carlinckel store Mr. Julius Garfinckel, Ir. allowed Mount Vernon to rent that second floor in the Valley. It was turned into classrooms, a library and an assem- bly hall with the help of cardboard and ply- wood. Wlhat experiences the girls had attend- ing school therel Because the arrangement in Spring Valley was only for the duration of the war, search began immediately for a new homesite. The land on Foxhall Road was found in 1944, and in 1945 the ground was dedicated "to the service of Cod through the education of llis children." ln the fall of 1946, Mount Vernon made one Hnal move to this new campus. An academic building, four dormitories and a dining room were built, then gradually were added the gymnasium, science building, Post Hall with Academic Building in 1968. Cate House on Foxhall Road Campus. expanded library, the gate house and the new Held house. In 1962, Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd retired and Mr. Peter D. Pelham became the new President of the school. Mount Vernon had once more shown both its strength and its adaptability. It would continue to develop as a well-established educational institution. However, on Novem- ber l, l965, Mount Vernon received its most crushing blow: the announcement was made Laura Kirby-Smith by the Board of Trustees that the Seminary would be closed and that Mount Vernon would continue to live on only as the Junior College. Although the year 1969 marks the closing of a beloved institution, it is our belief as stated by Mrs. Somers that 'Kwhatever has been most noble in the spiritual and intellectual culture of the school will be sacredly conserved.

HERMAN HESSE TI-IE PRESIDENTS MESSAGE TO Tl-IE CLASS OF 1969 Some of you are charter members of the Class of 1969 while others are completing their iirst year at Mount Vernon. Whether you have been here for four years or one, you and your class will always occupy a special place in the history of the Seminary. Only two classes may claim that distinction: Yours and that which entered in 1875, the year in which Mrs. Somers' School oflicially became Mount Vernon Seminary. The uniqueness which is corporately yours shall forever serve to remind generations of alumnae and students of the F ounder's wisdom and insight. Your collective role and individual performances are significant testimony to the importance of excellence in womenis educa- tion. During the days you have spent at Mount Vernon your clocks have seldom been silent but you have sewn well the intricate binding that unifies the chapters of your lives. May the outward cover of your book always express accurately the inner values which you have developed here. The past four years have included periods of happiness mixed with moments of doubt, con- cern and sadness. You have had to learn how to live with disappointment and you have done so gallantly. Never once has your class per- mitted its academic or personal expectations to falter nor have you allowed your esprit dicorps to ebb from its natural and full course. I salute you for both the courage of your convictions and the magnanimity of your spirit which you have consistently displayed. As members of the Class of 1969 and as alumnae you will continue to play an impor- tant and vital role in Mount Vernonis historical context. ln successive years, your insights into all avenues of learning and the opinions you express of your alma materis continuing efforts in education shall assist in establishing new and innovative directions for future genera- tions of students.
