Adele Stamp: Uncovered
Adele Stamp (1890-1974) arrived at the University of Maryland in 1922 to serve as the first Dean of Women, a position she held until 1960. During her time at UMD, the number of female students increased from approximately 75 to 3,600. While Stamp earned a reputation as a stickler for the rules, she also became a beloved member of the university community. We hope this exhibit provides a closer look at the real Adele.

The exhibit, created by graduate students Amanda Hawk and Allyson Raines, was displayed at the Stamp Student Union on Maryland Day, April 28, 2012.
