Women's History at UNH
In the summer of 2000, the class of 1950 celebrated its 50th reunion. To mark the occasion, they initiated The Women's History Project, an effort to document the history of women at UNH. The project was enthusiastically supported and gained sponsorship and contributions from The Center for the Humanities, the UNH Alumni Association, and several individual departments and offices on campus, including the Women's Studies Program. The result was A Century of Progress: A Photographic Exhibit of Women's History at the University of New Hampshire, 15 panels detailing women's participation in higher education in New Hampshire. The exhibit was gifted to the University by the class of 1950 and is permanently exhibited on the third floor of the Memorial Union Building on the UNH campus.
