In this interview, Ferguson tells why she chose to attend Pembroke College over Wellesley College; how following a woman she admired, she wanted to become a Boston insurance agent; and that she never felt she needed to be liberated. She discusses the remnants of Victorianism; marching for suffrage before age ten, and always having had a female doctor. She recalls the rules and regulations of Pembroke; mandatory chapel and the speeches given by Deans Allinson and Morriss; and the Brown/Pembroke merger which she opposed. Ferguson recalls living in New York and Washington—where her husband worked for the government; the stock market Crash of 1929; living through the Depression, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and her activity in various clubs and groups. Ferguson speaks of her time as the alumnae president; her daughter’s time at Pembroke during the early 1950s; her mistrust of the Brown Daily Herald; and the values instilled in her from Pembroke.
