Salve Regina Tea Display

Come see our display of silver tea trays and tea pots from the “Salve Regina College Guild: Leading ‘Culturally, Educationally, and Spiritually’ in Salve Regina’s Early Years” celebrates the role the Salve Regina College Guild played in shaping the institution. The display began as a quest to learn more about a collection of silver and silver-plated tea service transferred from Ochre Court to the Archives. These pieces belonged to the Guild, which was founded in 1948 to pursue the social and financial advancement of Salve Regina College. An organization of interested members of the Newport community, parents, and alumnae, the Guild flourished during the 1950s and 1960s.” Example photos from the display are below. The display is located on the 1st FL East Wing.
