1911/1912 Alumnae Register, Rockford College, Rockford Illinois - Music Department - Classes from 1862 to 1911; this post, 1876-1884

1911/1912 booklet, Volume 1-2, Number 58 of the Alumnae Register of Rockford College, Rockford, Illinois. Alumnae from the Classes of 1854 to 1911 are listed, with the names, occupations or husbands' names, and addresses.   This may not be a complete listing, as it may have depended upon whether or not the alumna (or relative or friend) took steps to update the college of her status.

The first portion of the Register deals with Classes 1854 to 1911 at the College - see previous posts for the names of those alumnae.  The latter portion of the Register deals with graduates of the Music Department, Classes 1862 to 1911, and there are a few male graduates as well.  This post will detail Music Department Classes 1876 through 1884.  A previous post dealt with the Classes of 1862-1875.  See future posts as I work toward the Class of 1911.
