May Day at Chatham

May Day was celebrated at Chatham University for many years with elaborate pageants attended by thousands of public spectators.  The last large May Day pageant occured in 1947 in the midst of student discussion around the educational value of the effort.  May Day pageants were common at women's colleges in the 20th century and scholarship presents theories connecting the popularity of pageants with discomfort with women's education.
