Grandma Robbins attended DePauw University

In January 2008 I finally learned where Grandma Robbins (Grace Gertrude Foulke Robbins) attended college. I was given a clue by my cousin Barbara and followed up the lead by contacting DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. They sent copies of pages from a yearbook and another reference in their archives. The records show that she attended classes in the 1901-1902 School year and that she took four classes. The sources also showed that she did not graduate. I was told by her son that she was sick and not able to complete her studies. She was studying to be a teacher. Cousin Barbara also supplied me with information about her graduating from Boxley High School in 1901.
