Women have been enrolled as students at Oregon State University since its founding in 1868 and a woman, Alice Biddle, was one of the first three graduates of Corvallis College (the predecessor to OSU) in 1870. The first Woman's Day was held in 1924 as an opportunity to honor women and mothers; it was later known as Women's Day (or Weekend) and is now known as Moms Weekend.
The Activities of Women Scrapbook consists of programs, brochures, and announcements for women's activities at Oregon State College. The activities include gymnastics demonstrations, dance festivals and performances, pageants, stunt shows, banquets, and teas. A program for the dedication of the Women's Building is included. Programs and announcements for the annual Woman's (and Women's) Day activities are part of the scrapbook.
The creator of the scrapbook is not identified; it may have been assembled by staff of the Oregon State College Library.
