Augustana Love Stories in Special Collections

“Who ever loved that loved not at first sight?”
-Christopher Marlowe

This thought-provoking question has enthralled young lovers at Augustana for decades. “Augustana Sweethearts” chronicles the love lives of three Augustana students: Netta Bartholomew Anderson, Lydia Olsson, and Ethel Pearson. During their years at the college, these young women overcame dull dates and overbearing suitors in order to find true love. This exhibit documents their struggles and successes through photographs, diary entries, and love letters. Come indulge in timeless tales of Augustana romance.

Curated by Rebecca Hopman ’11 and Anna Pusateri ’11, with assistance from Natalie Markovich ’11, this exhibit will be on display in Special Collections, on the first floor of the library, through mid-April.
