Stella Scott Vaughn graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1896 and was then hired by the university to serve as a women’s physical education instructor.  Her story captures much of the early history of the university and especially the role of women on campus during that time period. Join Director of the Robert Penn Warren Center Mona Frederick as she guides us through the life and times of this remarkable woman.
