SCOPE AND CONTENT

This collection consists of eight essays written between 1952 and 1976, most by Harvard or Radcliffe students, on topics in women's history. The earlier essays especially provide samples of research in an as yet undeveloped field; women's history did not begin to develop rapidly until the early 1970s. Subjects include Olympia Brown, Elizabeth G. Evans, Leonora O'Reilly, Hilda W. Smith, Fanny G. Villard, woman suffrage, women in the professions, the National Consumers' League, and the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association. Most were written using the resources of the Schlesinger Library.
