Parallel Lives: The Relationship between the Sexes at Millersville State Normal School, 1855-1927.
Coley, Robert E.; Desmond, Cheryl T.
This historic overview of Millersville State Normal School in Pennsylvania looks at the separate but equal treatment of male and female students and faculty during the late 19th and early 20th century. Although early school administrators were progressive in acceptance of both male and female students and careful to treat men and women equal in all intellectual situations and most social activities, coeducation meant separate spheres. Male and female students and faculty lived strictly enforced, sexually parallel lives where even the most casual interactions between members of the opposite sex were closely monitored and regulated aspects of daily life. Contains 33 notes. (MM)
