• History of the Needham Fund and Needham Prize Winners (quoted from Multifaria): [attached to folder]
“Mr. Charles Needham of Louisville, Kentucky, gave to Western College a sum of money, the interest from which has gone each year for prizes, $25 to the 5 girls who enter in the fall in the best physical condition and $25 to the 5 girls who have made the most improvement by spring. Three more prizes, $25, $15, and $10 each, go to the three of the ten girls who make the best scholastic record in their sophomore year. It is interesting thus to find proof of the effect of physical soundness on scholastic attainment and college activity, for the girls who win the Needham prizes very often make Honor Society, and are always active on the campus.”
