Morgan Explains that Female Faculty are not "on par" with Male Faculty

February 12, 1920

In a letter dated February 12, 1920, President Morgan responds to Mary Evans Rosa's letter regarding the Association of Collegiate Alumnae. According to President Morgan, he contacted the ACA a few years earlier and found that they required that women be on the faculty on equal footing as their male counterparts. He explained that "We had at that time no women in our faculty and could not, of course, meet conditions. I doubt very much whether we will meet them now. Women are not in our faculty on par with men. No woman is a head of a department, and I doubt whether one will be in the near future." Despite his reservations, Morgan promised to look into the matter.
