Women's History Month Conversation with Michele Ronnick

During the four decades of service that William SandersScarborough (1852-1926) and his wife Sarah Cordelia Bierce Scarborough (1851-1933) gaveto Wilberforce University, they met hundreds of people rangingfrom students and parents to some of the most famous people of their era.  Some came to receive honorary degrees such as Frederick Douglass andthe future president William McKinley. Others like Mrs. Elizabeth Keckley, Mrs. Lincoln'sstylist during the 1860s, came to join the faculty.  Mrs. Keckley had been a strong supporter of the school since its opening. Her son, George,  matriculated there in 1859. When she came to teach dress design and sewing, she broughtalong some of herownmemorabilia from her days in the White House. These including fabric from various items of Mrs. Lincoln's clothing, which found their way into sewing projects at Wilberforce such as theneedlework that Keckley's students prepared for the Chicago World's Fair (1893), anda quilt topowned by Mrs. Scarborough.
