Abstract

The Medals Collection was organized by Margaret C. Grigor (1912-1981), a 1934 graduate of Mount Holyoke College and the sculptor who designed some of these medals. They date from 1877 to the present and most were commissioned by institutions and organizations to commemorate anniversaries or celebrate notable achievements. The collection includes several examples of the Mount Holyoke Alumnae Medal of Honor (designed by Grigor) as well as correspondence, lists, and notes describing the medals and many of the artists who created them.
