Carry Nation graduated from Warrensburg State Normal School (UCM long before it was named UCM).
So, What is the big deal about Carry Nation? Have you Heard about her and want to learn more? Do you know anything about her? (read on)
Students from UCM, under its various titles over the years, have written about Carry Nation. At the time she was alive, she was world famous for her work with feminism, temperance, and her actions in getting what she wanted. Consider her a revolutionary figure of the prohibition era. I, like many others did not know she went to this school or even that she lived in Missouri for part of her life. I went to the UCM Archive and Museum and wanted to learn more. Learn more by reading what The Student (a precursor to the Muleskinner) and a Muleskinner article have to say.

The history of our Alumna is interesting. We have many trials and errors, people who fight for what they believe is right, like Carry, and much more stored in the UCM Archives. Along with that, UCM is still making history as every one of the current alumni, graduate students, and undergraduate students live out their lives.
