Women's Voices: Early Years at the University of Michigan

Description

Womens' Voices is a collection of vividly expressed reminiscences of the earliest women students admitted to the University of Michigan. The quotations were selected from responses to a survey sent in 1924 to all alumnae who had attended the University of Michigan. The idealism, hopes and dreams of youth have been vividly and movingly expressed by these women, as well as the struggles and frustrations of their courageous entrance into a campus designed for the instruction and accommodation of men only. This is a searchable, digital full-text version of a Bentley Historical Library bulletin published in 2000.
