Named For

Mabel Dart Colegrove

Mabel Dart Colegrove was a graduate of the Class of 1882. Daughter of the Hamilton orchard farmers (Dart Orchard) who ran Colgate's Boarding Hall, she was accepted to Madison/Colgate at age 14 after passing a "long and searching" entrance exam to assuage the concerns of skeptical professors. Colegrove was especially strong in languages. After seven successful semesters at Colgate, she was compelled to transfer and graduate at Vassar; after graduation, she became a teacher and librarian, and, at the end of her life, was officially recognized as the first Colgate alumna in June 1947.
