The Higher Education of Women in the South: An Annotated Bibliography. Archival and Bibliographic Series, III.
Dittemore, Margaret, Comp.; And Others
This annotated bibliography lists 635 publications, dissertations, and archival sources which examine the history of women's education in the southern United States. A brief history of the education of women in the South precedes the bibliographic listings. The sources range between very general works, scholarly books and articles, student and financial records, private papers, and memorabilia of educators and noted alumnae. Secondary sources include a sample of general works which set the larger national stage and a number of more regionally-specific ones, all published between 1874 and 1991. The bibliography includes works on the changing purpose and nature of women's education in the South, the forces (such as the state and religion) for and against women's education, the formal and informal institutions in which education took place, and the women who participated. The primary sources listed represent responses to a mailed questionnaire sent to college and university archives of nine different Southern states. Entries are alphabetical by author. Where there is more than one author for one source, the listing is under the first author, and the others are noted in cross references and in the author index. A subject index is also included.
