This month in history (124 years ago)

June 25, 1891

“My Darling Louise:

“Commencement exercises occurred at 10 this a.m. … One thing that looked strange to me was to see the ladies marching in the procession with the boys and going upon the platform with them. Every class, I think, except the law had one or more ladies. Even the doctors of philosophy of which there were four contained one lady. The medical classes each contained several ladies. In the class of pharmaceutical chemists Miss Greaves was the only lady to 29 boys.”
