Currently, pet ownership within the colleges is limited to Masters and RAs who generally own a couple of cats or dogs. Students used to share this same privilege until it was banned in 1977. It’s unclear when this started. If you know, please say so in the comments.
Below is the Food and Housing pet registration form.
There is even a list of all the students who had cats and dogs. As is clear in the top photograph, Mayor Parker preferred dogs and must have gotten hers right before the ban began. Dogs and cats owned before the ban took affect were grandfathered.
These forms come from the Lovett College records, which were donated by Sharon O’Leary, the Lovett College Coordinator.
