Women have been educated at the Harvard Business School (HBS) since 1937, and this online exhibit from the Baker Library at HBS provides a wealth of material on the period from "the first daring experiment in 'practical education' for women" in 1937 to 1970, when women became residents in HBS dormitories. The materials here are organized chronologically into areas like "Co-Education: Women and Men at Harvard Business School, 1963-1970". As users proceed through this collection, they will find images from the period, along with short essays that flesh out the various ways in which women were incorporated into the academic programs and life of the HBS. Visitors can also take a look at the "Oral Histories Collection" area which includes interviews with four women who graduated from the program during the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. The site is rounded out by a brief guide to the in situ archival collections held at the Baker Library which deal with this subject.
