COLLEGE WOMEN is a searchable portal of diaries, letters, scrapbooks and photographs from the archives of a select group of the earliest women’s colleges in the United States, the Seven Sisters.


White Paper: College Women: Documenting the Student Experience at the Seven Sisters Colleges: The purpose of these projects has been to create a public site that brings together collections of letters, diaries, scrapbooks and photographs of students at women’s colleges in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in order to encourage greater study and understanding of the lives, expectations and experiences of the first generations of college-educated women in America.
