Description


Using biography, autobiography, journals, and letters, Lone Voyagers offers portraits of seven women who were the first of their sex to work as faculty and deans at coeducational universities in the United States and Canada. Most historians of higher education have focused their attention on women's colleges. Here, thanks to the research of seven scholars, are the stories of pathbreakers, pioneers, and models of achievement--stories frequently marked by loneliness, isolation, and solitary triumph.
