    Acquisition Information

    The Shasta Springs album was acquired from Constance Condit.


    Mary McLean Olney was born in Oakland in 1873. She graduated from the University of California in 1895 with majors in English and Latin. After a brief period of teaching at Stanford University, she became the first dean of women at Pomona College, and later was made a trustee at Pomona. She was a member of the National Board of the YWCA, the Berkeley Town and Gown Club, San Francisco's Town and Country Club, and many other civic organizations.
    Her husband was Warren Olney Jr., a former president of the University of California Alumni Association and legal counsel for the Board of Regents. The couple had two sons and one daughter. At her death in 1965 at the age of 92, she was remembered as one of the Berkeley community's most active citizens in civic affairs.
