  • Preface

    Cordelia C. Nevers Marriott (class of 1886) and Roberta H. Montgomery McKinney

    (class of 1897) compiled the fi rst edition of Songs of Wellesley in 1896. Th is expansive

    book was a collection of class and crew songs, along with advertisements for corsets,

    shoes, and the late 19th-century candy factories of Boston. It is a wonderful resource

    for those wishing to take a look back to where stepsinging originated.

    Stepsinging, as it is known today, began at the dedication of the Houghton Memorial

    Chapel in 1899. Prior to this event, Wellesley students would often gather informally

    at College Hall to sing as a form of after-dinner entertainment. After the dedication,

    they continued the tradition, but moved the location to the steps of the chapel. In

    the 1950s, stepsinging was modifi ed yet again, and its occurrence was reduced to four

    times a year. Presently, it is held three times a yearafter convocation, the last day of

    classes, and at reunion. Current stepsinging utilizes many of the same songs as those of

    the original performances, though there have been some variations in tempo and lyrics

    over the years. Th e songs collected for this Songbook range from 1886 to 1946, and are

    the most popular songs of the bunch.

    We hope you enjoy learning and singing these songs for years to come. Our thanks to

    the Wellesley College Archives and their staff s continuing enthusiasm for Wellesley

    College traditions.
