Centennial Exhibit

The Centennial Exhibit reflects on the extraordinary life of Ela Hockaday. It explores three key themes interwoven throughout her life and work: teaching, leadership, and life-long learning. Miss Hockaday's world comes to life through furniture, objects, and art from her home, "The Cottage," along with archival images, texts, and recollections.

Some of Miss Hockaday's items on display include:
  • Her writing desk
  • Tea sets
  • Jade and book collections
  • Photos and timeline
Learn about the history behind many of Hockaday's most treasured traditions, including the uniform, the Hockaday ring, and graduation.

Exhibit Chair: Katherine Rogers Roberts '89
Exhibit committee members: Britten LaRue '96Shannon Morse '88, and Ellen Higginbotham Rogers '59
