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 www.radcliffe.edu/schles/veterans.php.) 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).
