The major themes through out the 137 pages of photographs are sports, architecture, theater, and off-campus activities. These subjects are historically relevant to the time in which Passmore was scrapbooking. It was a time where it was still controversial for women to receive an education in part due to arguments set forth by Edward Clarke Hammond that women were too “fragile” of creatures to handle a rigorous academic setting let alone engage in sports and other activities. Also, the Quaker ideals of a “guarded education” had been in the conscious of the designers of Bryn Mawr, which discouraged against such frivolous activities like theater, fashion or dancing. It is clear from her pictures that Passmore enjoyed participating in such things and had no qualms about commemorating it, which speaks to how Quaker roots were starting to disappear from the overt consciousness college. This linkage between Quakerism and Bryn Mawr would not appear again until the college's literature of the 1950’s.
