RADCLIFFE LEADERSHIP (1879-1999)

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A committee of "seven ladies," which included Elizabeth Cary Agassiz and Alice Mary Longfellow, advertised "Private Collegiate Instruction for Women" in 1879, responding to the need for advanced educational opportunities for female students. This "experiment," known familiarly as the Harvard Annex, became a chartered Institution, Radcliffe College, in 1894.
