A Dangerous Experiment; 100 Years of Women at the University of Michigan.
McGuigan, Dorothy Gies
This book relates the story of women's struggle to gain admission to the University of Michigan, beginning with an attempt by the first female applicant in 1858, actual admission of a female in 1870, the type of women who had the boldness to come to an all-male college, the obstacles they met, and what they chose to do with their education. The reactions against coeducation in the early 1900's that took the form of quota systems is discussed, along with the gradual changes since those years. The book concludes with a statement on the status of women in academia in 1970. (AF)
