Biographical Note

Carrie T. Sibold (1904-1990) was a Blacksburg, Virginia resident and one of the first women graduates of Virginia Tech (1925). She formed part of the first class of women who enrolled as freshmen at Virginia Tech in 1921. Sibold worked for the Virginia Tech Alumni Office until her retirement in 1966. Afterward, she remained an active member of V.P.I.'s "Old Guard" and assisted in the arrangement of class reunions. Carrie T. Sibold was also known locally for her extensive doll collection.

Scope and Content

The Carrie T. Sibold Papers consists of scrapbooks, journals, V.P.I. reunion materials, photograph albums, family diplomas, and the diary of Nannie V. Sibold. As a whole, the collection dates from 1912 to 1990. However, Carrie. T. Sibold's scrapbook journals, which run from 1974 to 1990, constitute the the bulk of the collection material.

The journals and other scrapbooks contain a record of Carrie Sibold's daily activities, as well as newspaper clippings. Many of these clippings concern local events and history, local church activities, Blacksburg high school and college sports teams, television shows Carrie Sibold watched or intended to watch, soap opera summaries, and celebrity news. These journals document Carrie Sibold's life after her retirement.

Dating from 1912 to 1926, the diplomas include grammar school and high school diplomas for members of Carrie Sibold's family. The papers series contains various documents and papers related to the VPI alumni organization and reunion arrangements, as well as the diary of Nannie V. Sibold, which she kept from 1935 to 1939. The collection also includes eight photograph albums, most of which do not provide identification for the individuals pictured.
