President Morgan Discusses Marriage and Motherhood among Female Graduates of Dickinson College

April 13, 1922

In a previous letter dated April 7, 1922, Eleanore Robinson, a reporter from Chicago, wrote President Morgan in reference to the marriage and divorce rates of female Dickinson Graduates. Robinson argued that college-educated women make better wives and mothers than women who do not attend college. On April 13, 1922, President Morgan responded to Robinson's letter. He agreed that educated women make better wives and mothers. Morgan explained that a "large portion of women through the years have married." Moreover, he asserted that, "to the best of my knowledge and belief in all these years there has been no case of legal separation for any woman who has graduated from the college."
