Lynn Voss's Comments on the Academics at Dickinson

A female Dickinson graduate comments in the "Women as Leaders" survey about the academic caliber of the students at Dickinson. She had always felt that the women in her classes and the classes around hers, "were superior to the men in talent." However, the "men dominated the visible offices easily" and they outnumbered the women, such as in her graduating class there were 65-70 women out of 200 or more students. The college did attract a "high calibre of women" but she never had an overwhelmingly high regard for the "academic prowess of the men."

Lois Page's Survey

From her time here at Dickinson, a female student of the class of 1961, recalls the restrictions women still faced on campus in the "Women as Leaders" survey. Women's social life was restrictive in that "Freshmen girls had to be in by 9:00 p.m. on weeknights, etc." The women's Freshmen dorms were also "terribly far away" from campus. Women's sports were also downplayed, which she experienced firsthand.

Dangerous New Morality

In a letter to the editor for The Dickinsonian, David I. Thompson, M.D. discussed the availability of the Pill as the reason for greater "indulgence" in premarital intercourse but explained that most local physicians would not prescribe the Pill to unmarried women.

He also reported a serious problem with venereal disease.

Freedom of Press?

Many of the Letters to the Editor in an issue of The Dickinsonian addressed the censorship that the president of the college practiced by preventing publication of the newspaper in response to the cartoon on "The New Morality." Susan Jagielio complained of the outright censorship the president had practiced, and John Exdell called the action the "height of bureaucratic callousness."
