"The Improved Order of Red Men is one of the nation's oldest patriotic fraternal organizations, established in 1834. Their rituals are modeled after those assumed to be used by Native Americans. The organization claimed a membership of about half a million in 1935, but has declined to a little more than 15,000. The Order's female auxiliary is the Degree of Pocahontas, which dates back to the 1880s."

'According to our records, Margaret Buchanan (1906) attended the preparatory school of West Virginia University, attended the university 1902-1906, and received an A.B. from West Virginia in 1906. She taught Mathematics and Greek from 1907 (or 1908?) until 1912 in the preparatory school and University. She was an instructor at West Virginia 1915-1918, and returned after obtaining her Ph.D. in 1922 from Bryn Mawr College, to West Virginia as assistant professor 1922-1925 and associate professor 1925-1929. She resigned to marry H. O. Cole on 1929/02/14. She returned to the university, presumably as Margaret Buchanan Cole, as an instructor 1938-1941, assistant professor 1941-1952, and associate professor 1952-1955. She retired in 1955 and died on 1959/09/10. We understand she was also, in 1939, the first woman president of the university's alumni association.'
