The papers pertaining to Lucretia Mott Churchill Jordan's work at Clark are at the Goddard Library at Clark University; papers about her attempt to re-enter Radcliffe are in the Radcliffe College Archives.
Jordan served on the board of the Clark University Women's Club and was its president for several terms. When Clark began to admit women, Jordan helped prepare the incoming women for campus life. During World War II she worked as a volunteer at a local hospital. A capable nurse, at the age of 70 she became interested in the care of the terminally ill, and enrolled in classes in that field. This return to academe prompted her to try to complete the requirements for her Radcliffe degree, but she did not succeed. Jordan died on February 24, 1979, in Washington, D.C.
Lucretia Mott Hallowell Churchill (1867-1958) was raised in the Boston area. After her marriage to Frank S. Churchill (Harvard 1886, M.D. 1890), she moved to Chicago, where she did volunteer work for numerous charitable organizations.
