Elizabeth Anna Low Agrees to write her Personal Account of Early Coeducation at Dickinson College

Letter
Date: 
January 19, 1951

In a letter to Dickinson College Historian Charles Coleman Sellers, Elizabeth Anna Low agrees to write her account of early coeducation at Dickinson College. However, she asked Sellers to be more clear on what he expected. In the letter, Low begins describing early coeducation at Dickinson. She explains that "there was undoubtedly some feeling about the admission of women, but much of it had disappeared by the time I reached there." Despite this statement, Low recalls an election in which her name was removed due to her gender and not being admitted to the literary societies. In closing,  she remembers the friendships she made with other women at the college and how much such friendships meant to her.
