Theora England served as professor at Northwestern College, Orange City, Iowa, for 35 years, where she taught drama, directed plays, and founded the Northwestern College Choral Readers. A binder includes pageant drafts, notes, and the final copy for “Northwestern, A Silver Lantern,” which was written for an Independent Play-Writing Course at the University of Minnesota. The pageant commemorated the twenty-fifth anniversary of Northwestern College and was performed at Northwestern College homecoming weekend, September 24 and 26, 1953. Sixteen scrapbooks cover dramas performed at the college and in Orange City; the Delta Psi Omega Cub; Choral Readers; annual reports; speech festivals, trips, and programs; local news; and news about Northwestern College students and graduates. Also included are Valentines and Christmas cards from former students.
