House History

TILDEN, Winifred (1889-1948) a native of Ames, graduated from Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, Massachusetts in 1903. She had professional training at Harvard, Columbia and the California Dancing School. She was the founder and for 40 years identified with the University program of physical education for women. By her enthusiasm and understanding of basic needs, she built a strong foundation of curriculum, staff, and facilities on which the department continues to develop. In initiating the work at I.S.U. when classroom space was unavailable, she said, "We have lots of space outdoors and that is a fine place for sports."
