Hotline: Marymount College

Visits from Santa, parties for orphan children, stockings outside dorm rooms – these are just some of the holiday traditions of Marymount College, Kansas’s first four-year college for women. Dr. Patricia Ackerman, freelance writer and professor of language arts at Kansas State University, shares the story on the Humanities Holiday Hotline.


This recording is part of the Humanities Kansas Hotline, a series of bite-sized micropresentations about Kansas stories – both serious and light-hearted – that are researched and presented by experts across the state.
