Interview with Grace Green Shields, Class of 1917, daughter of an IWU faculty member, who was born in, and lived in, a house adjacent to IWU. The interview took place on September 4, 1976 and was conducted in South Haven, Michigan by her daughter, Rachel Shields Scott.

Mrs. Shields relates several stories about growing up around campus and going to IWU as a student. One story is about how she and her sister won the first-ever intercollegiate tennis tournament hosted by Millikin in 1917, the significance of which both Grace and her daughter discuss since it is years before the recently enacted legislation for equality under Title IX.
