The Emmanuel Alumnae News was released in October 1935, under the leadership of Mary Sheehan ‘29, President of the Alumnae Association and Anne McNamara ‘30, editor. It had the support of the College, as reflected by Sr. Helen Madeline Ingraham, SND, College Dean, who stated in the publication’s first edition: “It is, then, a joy for me to greet this new Emmanuel activity, the News, and to assure it of the same affectionate interest I have given to every new venture at Emmanuel.” The publication was designed to provide information on Emmanuel College and its alumnae. Of particular interest are the articles the discuss the formation of the Appointment Bureau (also identified as the Placement Bureau or the Bureau of Occupational Assistance), occupational interviews with alumnae, class notes, the role of women in World War II (WWII) and the expansion of Emmanuel College. In the autumn of 1945 the Emmanuel Alumnae News was replaced by the Logos.

This non-consecutive collection is arranged into one (1) series by volume number for all ten (10) volumes that are held by the Emmanuel College Archives. This arrangement was imposed by the Archives Librarian in the absence of an original order.
