FebruMary at MHC

Celebrating Mary Lyon's birthday all month long

FebruMary Fact of the Day – Feb. 6

Leave a comment

In honor of the 2014 Winter Olympics, which are starting today:

Mary Lyon thought it was important that her students get their daily exercise.  She required that all students walk a mile every day.  In bad weather, she amended her requirement to 30 minutes of walking instead of a specified length.

This FebruMary Fact of the Day is brought to you by our friends in the MHC Archives and Special Collections.  If you have not done so already, you should definitely check them out on your favorite social media sites – they are on Twitter,  Tumblr, Pinterest,  and Instagram.  There is so much great information about MHC to explore!
