Alice S. Rossi Papers, 1927-2009; item description, dates. MC 670, folder #. Schlesinger
Library, Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.
The Schlesinger Library also holds the records of Sociologists for Women in Society
and the National Organization for Women (MC 496)
. A videotape of Rossi's 1989 lecture on "Women and Intellectual Development" at Brandeis
University (#22.7) is also available at the Schlesinger Library (Vt-044).
Sociologist and feminist Alice Emma Schaerr Rossi was born to Emma and William A.
Schaerr in Brooklyn, New York, on September 24, 1922. She attended Grover Cleveland
High School in Brooklyn, Brooklyn College (BA, 1947), and received a PhD in sociology
from Columbia University in 1957. At 19, she married Max Kitt, her former teacher;
they were divorced in 1951. Later that same year she married sociologist Peter H.
Rossi (1921-2006), who also obtained a divorce from his first wife in order to marry.
They had three children: Peter Eric, Kristin, and Nina.
After marriage, Alice worked as a research associate at Harvard University, the University
of Chicago, the National Opinion Research Center, and Johns Hopkins University, as
Peter held academic jobs at or near those institutions. In 1969, Alice became Associate
Professor of Sociology at Goucher College. In 1974 both Rossis received faculty appointments
at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where they taught until retirement.
Alice Rossi's academic work focused on issues of women's equality, life choices and
changes, and professional work; gender within the family; and abortion laws and public
attitudes toward abortion. Her 1963 paper, "Equality Between the Sexes: an Immodest
Proposal" (published in Daedalus in 1964) decried full-time motherhood as a significant obstacle to women's political
and social equality with men. She was editor (with Ann Calderwood) of Academic Women on the Move (1973), a volume that looked at women's achievements, stumbling blocks, and representation
throughout academia. Rossi also edited The Feminist Papers: From Adams to de Beauvoir (1973), an early and influential work in the field of women's history.
Rossi attended the organizational meeting of the National Organization for Women (NOW)
in 1966, and served on that organization's national board until 1970. She also served
on the board of the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL, 1969-1972).
She was appointed to the National Commission for the Observance of International Women's
Year (1977-1978) and later published an account of the resulting conference: Feminists in Politics: A Panel Analysis of the First National Women's Conference (1982).
Rossi was extremely active in several professional associations. In 1969 Rossi and
other women members of the American Sociological Association (ASA) formed a Women's
Caucus. In 1971, that caucus was further transformed into a new organization, Sociologists
for Women in Society (SWS). SWS was intended to promote professional opportunities
for women in sociology, provide job market services, explore the contributions of
sociology to the humanization of sex roles, and serve as guardian for women in the
ASA. Rossi was the first president of SWS (1971-1972). She continued to serve a variety
of functions within ASA itself, including president (1982-1983), vice-president (1977-1978)
and president of the Family Section (1987-1989). She also served as chair of the American
Association of University Professors (AAUP) Committee W on the Status of Women in
Academia from 1970 to 1973. During Rossi's tenure, Committee W researched and recommended
policy changes on issues like nepotism (a common university policy which forbade spousal
hiring and was a barrier to the employment of dual-academic couples) and parental
leave. Rossi also served as vice-president of AAUP (1974-1976), president of the Eastern
Sociological Society (1973-1974), and chair of the Social Science Research Council
With her husband, she wrote Of Human Bonding: Parent-Child Relations Across the Life Course (1990). She edited several volumes relating to women and sociology, including Gender and the Life Course (1985), Sexuality Across the Life Course (1994) and Caring and Doing for Others: Social Responsibility in the Domains of Family, Work,
and Community (2001).
Alice Rossi was the recipient of numerous honorary degrees and awards. She died of
pneumonia on November 3, 2009, in Northampton, Massachusetts.
The collection is arranged in four series:
- Series I. Biographical and personal, 1927-2009 (#1.1-3.2, F+D.1-F+D.2, PD.1-PD.2,
DVD-050.1 - DVD-050.3, CD-045.1, E.1)
- Series II. Correspondence, 1937-2008 (#3.3-18.5, PD.3)
- Series III. Professional, 1954-1998 (#18.6-22.13, Vt-188.1)
- Series IV. Organizations, 1968-2007 (#22.14-25.14, CD-045.2)
The papers of Alice S. Rossi include correspondence, professional and autobiographical
writings, datebooks, photographs, a videotape, CDs, and DVDs. Much of the collection
is correspondence, either with family, friends and colleagues, or with other activists.
Little material is from her early life. Rossi organized her files before sending them
to the Schlesinger Library, and most folder titles are hers; those in brackets were
created by the archivist.
Series I, BIOGRAPHICAL AND PERSONAL, 1927-2009 (#1.1-3.2, F+D.1-F+D.2, PD.1-PD.2,
DVD-050.1 - DVD-050.3, CD-045.1, E.1), includes family photographs, datebooks, resumes,
and autobiographical writings. A photograph album from the 1930s shows Rossi's unidentified
family members and friends. Rossi's high school newspaper articles are collected in
a scrapbook (#2.11). A transcript of an interview for the Valley Women's History Collaborative
details Rossi's experience with gender politics at University of Massachusetts. The
series also includes Peter H. Rossi's privately published autobiography (#3.2), as
well as Alice Rossi's unpublished autobiographical writings (#1.2-1.3). One DVD is
a video of Peter H. Rossi's 2007 memorial service. The other two DVDs are conversations
between Alice Rossi and her daughter Nina, fueled by Nina's suggestion that her mother
paid too much attention to work and not enough to parenting. One of the CDs is a radio
interview with the two women on the same topic that aired on National Public Radio.
The series is arranged alphabetically.
Series II, CORRESPONDENCE, 1937-2008 (#3.3-18.5, PD.3), includes Rossi's incoming
and outgoing letters to her husband, children, colleagues, students, and friends.
Almost daily letters between Peter and Alice detail their courtship and the months
leading up to their wedding in 1951, during which time both were also attempting to
obtain divorces from their first spouses. Alice maintained an extensive correspondence
with her children, particularly Nina, which often details their stormy emotional relationships.
Most of Rossi's correspondence with her children was filed in named folders, though
some can also be found throughout the general chronological files. Rossi filed her
general correspondence alphabetically by sender during the 1970s; she later filed
correspondence by year. These arrangements have been maintained. A folder of correspondence
between Rossi and her good friend Sarah Betsky includes letters discussing a difficult
time in the Rossi's marriage. Most general correspondence is from sociologists, other
professional colleagues, students, etc. Correspondence with other academics in the
late 1960s and early 1970s often involves questions about scholarship on women and
Academic Women on the Move (see also Series III). There is no general correspondence between 1978 and 1992.
General correspondence in the 1990s and 2000s is with colleagues working on midlife
research, children, and grandchildren. Much of the 2007 correspondence is in response
to Peter's death in 2006. The series is arranged with Rossi's family correspondence
first, followed by alphabetical and then chronological folders.
Series III, PROFESSIONAL, 1954-1998 (#18.6-22.13, Vt-188.1), includes material relating
to Rossi's lectures, awards, papers, reviews, etc., as well as several of her book
projects. Folders on lectures and/or conferences may include copies of speeches, correspondence,
programs, etc. Several folders relate to the editing and publishing process for The Feminist Papers. Material about Academic Women on the Move includes correspondence with co-editor Ann Calderwood, chapter authors, the Russell
Sage Foundation (funders and publishers), etc. The series is arranged chronologically,
with material on book projects filed together.
Series IV, ORGANIZATIONS, 1968-2007 (#22.14-25.14, CD-045.2), includes correspondence,
notes, and research documents related to the founding of the American Sociological
Association Women's Caucus and Sociologists for Women in Society (SWS), as well as
the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) Committee W on the Status
of Women in Academia. A few folders document Rossi's involvement with the National
Organization for Women, including a lengthy written report of the NOW 2006 convention
that includes Rossi's memories of events surrounding the 1966 founding meetings. A
CD of a 2007 radio show discusses Rossi's 40 years of involvement with NOW. SWS material
includes notes, meeting minutes, and correspondence, primarily with other founding
members Arlene Kaplan Daniels, Lenore Weitzman, Pauline Bart, Athena Theodore, and
Joan Huber. The AAUP Committee W was reactivated in the summer of 1970 after being
inactive since the mid 1920s. AAUP material was not particularly well-organized by
Rossi and material in folders may overlap considerably. The series is arranged alphabetically.
A selection of the photographs in this collection are or will be cataloged in VIA,
Harvard University's Visual Information Access database. Others, referred to as "uncataloged"
photographs, are not of sufficient research interest to warrant cataloging and are
simply treated as part of the documents they accompany; they are marked on the back
with an asterisk in square brackets [*].
