Design for a Duchess - 1947 Duke University Manners Guide for Women. Social Standards Committee of the Woman's Student Government Association. This 22-page guide that provides the ins and outs of adjusting to Duke University college life. The guide recognizes staring college is a way to express your individuality but is also a way of "conforming to standards of discrimination, courtesy, and discretion". Guide includes fashion tips such as the sweater, skirt, bobby sox and loafers outfit. Dressy or cocktail dresses are appropriate for informal dances and parties but you'll need a white dress for several occasions. A duchess should greet everyone with a smile, take blind dates when recommended by a friend, and take part in class discussions. A duchess should NOT take showers in the middle of the night, chew gum in glass, wear pin curlers in the union (even under a scarf), or be a perpetual griper.
