  1. Posting my subquestion as my first comment on this blog… I’d like to think about the question “For whom was Barnard first intended?” from the angle of Barnard’s first alumnae. What was expected of these first graduates of Barnard College? What were they expected to do with their degrees? Become society women? Become teachers, like the graduates of the two-year Normal College teaching certificate program? Marry and have children? Enter academia? What were the desired results of their four years of study at Barnard?
