Scope and Contents note

This collection contains newspaper clippings, correspondence, and photographs that documents Jeannette Bowden's receipt of the Northern Michigan University (NMU) distinguished alumni award (1971) and her retirement in 1980. Most of the correspondence is lauditory and congratulatory in content and tone. The collection contains very little substantive material documenting her career at NMU. The collection also contains a transcript of a speech given by Bowden in 1965 that summarizes her work experiences in the university President's office. The collection's materials range in date from 1965 to 1980.
