Clara Elizabeth Pitman (North Conway, N.H.) and Alice Priest (Canton, N.Y.) are listed in the Catalogue of the Officers and Students of Westbrook Seminary for the Academic Year Ending June 22, 1900, as Westbrook Seminary Class of 1901 and Westbrook Seminary Class of 1902, respectively.

In this 1899 sepia toned photograph mounted on a black backing, the two girls stand, with linked arms, outside Hersey Hall. Clara holds a plaid stadium blanket and Alice has a punching ball hanging from a cord around her neck. She leans her head on Clara's shoulder. Both girls wear dark skirts and white blouses. Clara's hair is piled Gibson Girl style on the top of her head.
