Description

Peggy Swafford (born Mary Jakku) received her Bachelor of Music from the college in 1956. Raised in Oregon, Peggy's passion for music lead her to follow her childhood music tutor to Lewis & Clark in 1952. While at school Mary lived in Akin Hall until she moved off during the last semester of her senior year. While at Lewis & Clark, Peggy met her husband playing in the school symphony. In this interview Peggy speaks largely about her experiences in classes and music groups, but also talks about dating, social experiences and practical jokes.
