Description

This article published by The Collegian on October 26th, 1923, called, "Thief In Dormitory Halted By Matron" describes a black man suspected of stealing at Randolph-Macon Women's College being pursued by a matron at gunpoint. Mrs. F. M. Mitchell fired two shots at him, however he managed to escape. It had been known that some of the young woman's possessions had gone missing, so when the man knocked at several students doors, they became suspicious and made the matron aware.
