Scope and Contents: The Dorothy Christoff papers (1963-1967; 0.5 cubic feet) document Christoff’s time at Purdue as an engineering student. The collection consists of various artifacts, including Christoff’s senior cord skirt, stickers and decals, a class photograph, and a decorative wooden t-square with Christoff’s affiliations on the front and signed by her classmates on the back. These materials reflect only Christoff’s time as an undergraduate civil engineering student at Purdue, although she did eventually complete a Master’s degree in education as well. The collection would be useful to researchers interested in women in higher education in the twentieth century, material culture of the mid-twentieth century, Purdue student social life and customs, and the early years of the Purdue Society of Women engineers. Included in the collection are various types of artifacts. The papers are organized into a single series.
