Administrative/Biographical History

Three ladies formed the History Class of 1884. All three ladies had recently moved to Atlanta, Georgia from the northeastern United States and had all been members of a study club and discovered Atlanta did not have a similar organization. They formed the History Class because they were "missing the pleasure of studying with a group whose interests would be like their own." Additional biographical information about the History Class of 1884 has not been determined.
