The collection consists of biographical information and Radcliffe Written History Project questionnaires completed by 14 members of the Radcliffe College Class of 1968. The Written History Project questionnaire was adapted from questions asked by the Radcliffe College Club of San Francisco in their Radcliffe College Alumnae Oral History Project. Questions were intended to record alumnae memories of the Radcliffe College undergraduate experience and how it influenced their life choices. Questionnaires are divided into seven sections: applying to Radcliffe, arriving at Radcliffe, academics, life as a Radcliffe student, Radcliffe and its connection to the future, retrospect, and identity and connection to Radcliffe since college. Responses were received from Linda Liu Behar, Barbara B. Brown, Lauralee Coady, Ellen Hume, Susan Levenstein, Harriet Ritvo, Beatrice Lorge Rogers, Ruth Schechter, Barbara Ann Shore, Margaret Auchincloss Strachan, Cornelia H.J. van der Ziel, Jacqueline Lang Weaver, Lee Anne Wilson, and Elaine Woodward.
