About this Event
Sycamores, the 1788 home of Colonel Ruggles Woodbridge, was a dormitory from 1915–1972, and home to 800 Mount Holyoke sophomores. You will see the silk embroidery made by Sophie Morgan of South Hadley's Abby Wright School in 1805, the newly-decorated period rooms and the attached Rawson House, the 1733 home of South Hadley’s first minister, as well as the home of Mount Holyoke professor and Nobel Laureate Joseph Brodsky (1940–1996). The third floor of Sycamores has been made into a unique museum of typical Mount Holyoke dormitory rooms during the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. It will feature an amazing group of gifts from Carolyn Chesebrough Foster ’58.
