Mount Holyoke Journal Letters, 1843-1891

Index to Journalists

This list includes Mount Holyoke class and teaching affiliation for each journalist. Journal Letters are identified by month/year or by year. To link a specific journalist with a specific letter, researchers must check the letters themselves. In most cases, each letter contains clear identification of the author, or notes have been added for clarification wherever possible.
