Helena Patricia Hogan was born in Ireland and was a student in 1928 when the Women’s College in Brown University became known as Pembroke College. She worked her way through school as a commuting student, or “city girl,” who came to campus every day on the trolley. In her interview, Hogan describes buildings on the Pembroke campus; her choice to major in Psychology; physical education; people she knew at Pembroke, and elements of her family history. She also explores her life after college, describing her work in teaching, testing, and grant writing. As an alumna, Hogan served as President of Pembroke Center Alumnae Association and worked on the Pembroke-Brown merger committee.
