Mary Jane Seed

A recent donation, this cap, gown and hood, belonged to Mary Jane Seed ( March 18,1902-May 28, 1984.)  Miss Seed was head of the Home Economics Department at  DeKalb University.  At every University Commencement, the faculty wearing thier caps, gowns and Master or Doctorate hoods, would march in the processional with the graduates. The small  photo of Mary Jane was taken in 1936 at Columbia University.
