Alumnae and War

The Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, part of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, is creating a record of Radcliffe and Harvard women who served in the armed forces and other services during World War II. (More details are available at Alumnae veterans or those with information about them may e-mail [email protected] or write to Jane Knowles, Radcliffe Archivist, Schlesinger Library, 3 James Street, Cambridge 02138. The research is part of the institute’s larger investigation of the roles of women in wartime (see “War, and Women,” page 64); some preliminary findings are on view in the library’s current exhibition, A Call to American Women: Responses to War. The institute is also organizing related panel discussions around the country: the first takes place in San Francisco on January 19, with institute dean Drew Gilpin Faust as moderator (see [email protected] or call 1-888-RAD-ALUM).
