In bibliography, autobiography, and other documents, this volume offers portraits of seven women who were the first of their sex to work as faculty and deans at coeducational universities in the United States and Canada.

"This volume presents seven female academics, pioneers in coeducational universities, whose struggles and triumphs emerge poignantly in personal and public writings. The individuality, dedication, and forcefulness of each defy stereotyping. Geraldine Clifford's superb scholarly overview provides essential historical context." —Barbara Miller Solomon, author of In the Company of Educated Women: A History of Women and Higher Education in America
