HISTORY

The Schlesinger Library had its origins in Maud Wood Park's gift of the Woman's Rights Collection to Radcliffe College in 1943. Opened to the public as the Women's Archives in 1948, it was renamed the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America in 1967. In 1979 the library initiated a series of luncheons featuring as speakers women who had given papers to the library.
