Description
Nicknamed The Queen. Mrs. A.E. Walker served as hostess at the student union for 35 years. Hired by the University in 1918 to provide a "feminine touch" to the all-male institution, Walker became a key fixture of student life. She hosted afternoon tea every Sunday, chaperoned countless dances at Madison Hall, presided over student union and recreational activities, and served as an all-around advocate and supporter of student activities at the University.
