Excerpt from Counterpoint: Fall, 1948
Throughout President Thomas' administration the sight Of a Bryn Mawr girl on the Haverford campus was practically unknown. It was believed that such intervisitations, at least on one side, were thoroughly discountenanced. Haverford undergraduates might, how ever, call, on their girl friends in Merion, Radnor, Denbigh or in later years in that non-welsh dormitory named Rockefeller. Such a call was a somewhat fearsome experience and could only be the result Of real devotion. The reception parlors were painfully exposed to view and while the maid announced the caller, he was subjected to the rapid but doubtless expert inspection Of other girls who made a point Of walking past the wide-open doors. If more than one caller was present, each formed a unit in as remote a corner Of the parlor as possible. It was something like a call at the grating Of a convent. All concerned felt they were under complete surveillance.
