University of Alberta Archives: Anderson, Ethel
Anderson, Ethel Cameron

Ethel C. Anderson was one of seven women who enrolled at the 
University of Alberta when it first opened in 1908.  They 
called themselves the "SIS" (Society of Independent 
Spinsters), which became the Wauneita Club in the following 
year.  Miss Anderson was student head of the women’s 
athletics program before she graduated in 1912 as a member 
of the University’s first graduating class.  She 
subsequently received her teaching certificate in Calgary 
and taught in Edson and Edmonton, where she retired in 1953.
