PG Tricentennial Prince George's County:
Over 300 years of History

To Do or Not To Do
** Booklet **
That is the Question

A Social Blue Book of Campus Etiquette

Published by the Women's League
of the University of Maryland, 1940

This Book of Etiquette was distributed to freshmen women as they entered the University of Maryland, in 1940. In today's context it's quite a "hoot." Hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Special thanks to Anne Turkos, University Archivist, (301)405-9060, for letting us post this pamplet on our site.
