The College of Wooster Special Collections
This is the first commencement program created by The College of Wooster. It includes the Order of Exercises as well as the University Calendar. This program is unique, for it does not include the names of the graduating class, unlike those from later years. Indicated by the small text on the lower end of the cover page, this program was printed by Republican Print in Wooster, Ohio. This commencement program is small in size, a trend that continues for the next couple decades.
