Inscription in ink: "First Tech Majorette, Miss Paula Stevenson."||Paula Clyde Stevenson Humphreys, Textile Engineering 1958, was active in campus organizations while a student at Tech. She was a member of the Student Council, the Society of Women Engineers, the Women's Student Association and was the first Tech co-ed to be drum majorette for the Tech Band as well as being the first woman member of the Rambin' Reck Club. In a Georgia Tech Alumni Association oral history interview in 1997, she recalls that when she was at Tech female student were shunned like lepers. She feels that her acceptance as a campus leader contributed to a positive change in attitudes toward women students. (Source: Georgia Tech Alumni Association Oral History Program, Catalog no. 157.)
