The Girl Graduate, Her Own Book - memory book bound in green leather
BSNS Scrapbook covered in maroon felt with black pages
Ida G. Wilson (Snyder) was born in Bloomsburg January 27, 1902 and graduated from the Bloomsburg State Normal School on June 19, 1918. After graduating she remained in Bloomsburg for a year, possibly as a student teacher. In 1919 she enrolled in the Teachers College at Columbia University in New York City, graduating in the Class of 1921. After graduation she took a job teaching in Hazleton, PA and it was there she met Roy D. Snyder. They were married on July 28, 1923, and in 1925 moved to Bloomsburg where they lived, most recently at 806 East Third Street, until she died on September 3, 1988. Ida and Roy Snyder had four children, all of whom attended the Benjamin Franklin Training School: Richard W. Snyder, James G. Snyder, Roy D. Snyder, Jr., and Nancy L. Snyder McCumber. Ida had very fond memories of her days at "The Normal". She was always very supportive of alumni activities and kept in touch with many of her school friends throughout their lifetimes. The scrapbook begins with items from 1914 and continues through her first year at Columbia Teachers College.
