Edith Alger’s role at Rhode Island College of Education was that of the spouse of the President, and in that capacity in 1922 she issued an invitation to faculty, an appeal for pictures, poems, and more to introduce newcomers to “the varied charms of Providence.” That compilation, a tongue in cheek Sight Seer’s Guide to Providence and Environs, is presented here, not worn by the donor as suggested by Mrs. Alger, but arranged as I hope she might have wanted it. Not one word has been changed.
