Marriage Rates and Motherhood Among Female Graduates of Dickinson College

April 7, 1922

In a letter dated April 7, 1922, Eleanor Robinson (Illinois Women's Press Association) wrote to President James H. Morgan in reference to the marriage and divorce rates of female graduates of Dickinson College. Robinson explained that she knew many college women who were married and did not know a single college woman who was a divorcee. She argued, "Judging then from my own acquaintance, it seems to me that college women make more successful wives and mothers than less educated women."She then went on to explain her argument.

It appears that Robinson intended to write an article on the subject and wrote President Morgan for more information.
