Abstract

Our summer research was looking at the collections of Emilie E. Palmer, the Woodcock Family, Adelia F. Johnson, Kellogg-Fairchild, Mary Church Terrell, Frances Densmore, and the Oberlin Mutual Improvement Club. We worked in a team of three, with Joanna Wiley, who worked on the collections of Luella Miner, Mary Sheldon, Ball and Curtis, and Sarah Furnas Wells. We are all completing projects that began in First Wave American Feminisms, a class we all took in Spring 2015 with Carol Lasser. Each collection is housed in the Oberlin College Archives, and is particularly relevant to the college and town’s history. We picked a range of documents-speeches, diaries, letters, pamphlets-to craft a story about each of these Oberlin women who contributed to society in unique ways.
