Mrs. Anderson, Dr. Anderson's wife, can also be seen in the "School Group" photo. Mrs. Anderson was a long time Montreat College and Normal School patroness. Dr. and Mrs. Anderson gave to Montreat with both their hearts, lives, and checkbooks. Mrs. Anderson can be seen in many of the early yearbooks.


In the 1924, Sun Dial (Former Yearbook), it mentions that many of the school organizations had children as “mascots.” The little boy pictured in the photos is most likely the team mascot.
