Description Sallie Payne Morgan came to Colorado College as Assistant Dean of Women in 1949, and became the Dean of Women the following year. One of her main interests was recruiting girls with good academic records and finding funding for them. Another priority of Dean Morgan was addressing restrictive social rules for women. She describes the discussions about women's dorm hours and her effort to extend them and lighten the punishments for infringements. She instituted an honor dorm and eventually replaced the older dorm directors with younger women. Morgan talks about memorable people: President Gill, Dean Lew Worner, Glenn Gray, George McCue, Howard Olson, and Frank Krutzke. She retired at 65 in 1957 but returned in 1964 to work as a part-time receptionist at Tutt Library staying for twelve years (retired at age 81).
