Electronic Version Note

This electronic collection represents only a very small subset (1 folder) of a much larger body of archival records from the office of the Dean of Students. This material has been selected for digital access primarily because of its relevance to other coeducation materials digitized at Mount Holyoke College.

Series Description

The first part of the file consists of correspondence of the Dean of Students as well as MHC's Coordinator of Student Activities concerning MHC women's attendance at Dartmouth College's Senior Symposia program, Nov. 15-16, 1968, whose topic was "Focus on the New Morality."  This program may have served as a precursor to the main event to which most of the documents in this file refer, "Coed Week" at Dartmouth College, Jan. 26-31, 1969, at which more than 1,000 college women from the northeast region were in attendance.  Its main purpose was to make Dartmouth aware of the implications of pending coeducation there. The materials in the file include MHC women's responses to questionnaires; reports; lists of participants; and other program materials.
