History of womens education


Special Collections holds a significant physical collection of personal and institutional records and publications on the history of women’s higher education within its extensive collections on women's history. It also provides access to two important digital repositories: College Women is a searchable collection of diaries, letters, scrapbooks, and photographs from the archives of a select group of the earliest women’s colleges in the United States, the Seven Sisters. The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women's Education is an online locus of scholarship on the history of women’s higher education.
