Lucy Irvine Collection

Biographical Information

Lucy B. Irvine of Buffalo Gap, Virginia received her diploma from [then] State Female Normal School in June 1891.


It is unknown when, and by what means, this collection came into the possession of Longwood University or the Greenwood Library Archives. However, it is likely that the collection was donated to the school when Lucy Irvine attended the Fiftieth Anniversary Celebration in March 1934.

Scope and Content

This collection consists of a program from the Fiftieth Anniversary Celebration of the State Teachers College in 1934 and an essay, written by Lucy B. Irvine, entitled “Froebel and His Work,” which was read by her at the June 1891 commencement exercises.


This collection consists of (2) acid-free folders contained in a legal-sized archival box.


This collection is housed in a multi-collection box.

A transcription of the essay is available, as well as a scan of the original.

There are no restrictions to access or use for research purposes.
