Anna Eveleth Holman was born in Newton, Massachusetts, on July 11, 1892 and died on Concord on April 14, 1965. Holman was graduated from Brookline High School and from Radcliffe College in 1914 with a magna cum laude in English. She was a charter member of the Iota chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. In 1918, she was sent overseas by the War Work Committee of Radcliffe to work with the French Red Cross. She received an Ed.M. from Harvard in 1928 and taught at both Windsor and Dana Hall Schools. Holman had an intense interest in science--and in youth --and served for nearly twenty years on the Massachusetts State Science Fair Commission. She was also a member of the Federation of Atomic Scientists. She spent 1952-1954 in California, where she taught teachers how to teach science to young children. From 1937 to 1942, she was a Radcliffe Alumna Trustee. As editor of the Radcliffe Quarterly from 1942 to 1952 and 1954 to 1964, she brought national distinction to the magazine. In 1966, Holman was one of the two recipients to receive the Alumnae Recognition Award.


Collection consists of a college scrapbook including photographs, programs, invitations, and clippings, etc.; also awards, 1964-1967; and photographs of Holman, 1893-1919.
