M. Carey Thomas Papers

Creators M. Carey Thomas (1857-1935)
Abstract This collection will be especially interesting to historians of education, especially women and education; although Thomas was involved in many other issues, even this participation was often connected to education in some way. Many of Thomas's letters, articles, and speeches were about the quality of American education more generally, although she also, of course, took a particular interest in arguing for women's education, the values of single-sex vs. coed education, and refuting the arguments of people such as Edward Clarke. From an institutional perspective, relationships between and among students, faculty, and administration—often contentious—also receive a great deal of coverage.
