 Coeducation at Haverford: A Forced Revolution

 Schlesinger Library: Chapter One
Coeducation as a theory, however, was simply something that was not on the table, something that Harvard had historically opposed.Buck and Comstock may have personally wanted to merge classrooms, but if they did, they were too politically savvy to suggest such an abrupt shift at the university in 1943.

Coeducation at Harvard and Radcliffe would have meant the elimination of one college and the full assumption of responsibility by the other -- hence the popular description of the actual relationship as "coeducation in practice, not theory."
