Overview
Located in historic Charleston, South Carolina, Ashley Hall has excelled in preparing girls for future endeavors since its inception in 1909. Founder Mary Vardrine McBee, a young woman with astounding foresight and determination, led Ashley Hall for 40 years and paved bright futures for thousands of girls. Ashley Hall reveals the school's long and storied past, detailing its place in Charleston history. A pictorial retrospective, this volume explores the academic and the social aspects of Ashley Hall that have made it one of the South's premier schools for girls. More than 200 archival photographs chronicle the evolution of the Rutledge Avenue campus, from the sole Witte House to a block-long city landmark. Furthermore, these vivid images introduce the faces behind the names that live on in the school's history-Mary Vardrine and Estelle McBee, Caroline Pardue, Marie Baker-as well as newer friends who shaped the school in both large and small ways. Readers will join students as they attend class during the World Wars and the Great Depression, participate in the annual Kettledrum Carnival, take outings around the Lowcountry, and compete in-and perhaps take home the trophy-for any number of sporting events.
