  Harvard names Drew G. Faust as its 28th president

While evidence suggests the first collegiate field hockey team for women was organized at Goucher College in 1897, the sport quickly took on a New England flavor as men at Springfield College, who had been playing for a couple years by that point, had structured interclass competitions and a school-wide team as early as 1899.
James Huff McCurdy of Springfield College penned a set of rules for American field hockey in 1899 and the men at Springfield took great pride in playing field hockey, making special note of the interclass championships that were won each year.
Students from nearby Mount Holyoke College made the short trip to Springfield to watch the men play, but it was not until 1901 that women appeared to have picked up the game in the New England area after a visitor from England began teaching the ladies at Radcliffe.

"Radcliffe classes and individuals who are a mere five years apart have had very different undergraduate experiences" in terms of coedu-cation, extracurricular activities, and housing.
The Radcliffe Institute, nevertheless, "is committed to providing a Radcliffe reunion program to pre-1963 alumnae" as long as those activities are desired, she says.
At Radcliffe, according to the Radcliffe Quarterly, alumnae thespians put on a full-dress reunion show as early as 1909, a tradition that continued for decades, usually staged by the twenty-fifth reunion class.

 Bernice Brown Cronkhite: Radcliffe College Graduate Dean
Bernice Brown Cronkhite had tremendous impact on Radcliffe and its development, serving longer than any other senior officer from 1923 to 1959: 36 years -- first as vice president and dean, later the first dean of the Graduate School -- this on top of her years as an undergraduate and graduate student.
When she was appointed Radcliffe's third president in 1923, she chose Bernice as dean.
Radcliffe seminars and public procedures programs had their headquarters there, and countless meetings, conference and social events filled the attractive first floor rooms.

 The Harvard Crimson :: Opinion :: On From Radcliffe
The confusing and often tense relationship between Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges was challenged with new vigor last spring during competing capital campaigns and came to a head in the past several months, leaving many questioning Radcliffe's status as an undergraduate college.
Meanwhile, top-level officials from the two institutions have secretly discussed the redefinition of the 119-year-old college, though Radcliffe officials only publicly report that they are engaged in a "comprehensive strategic planning process." The changes would reportedly remove Radcliffe's "college" title.
Removing the "college" tagline from Radcliffe's name would put an end to the schizophrenic system of admitting female undergraduates to both Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges and having Radcliffe collect tuition dollars then immediately transferred to Harvard.

 Anthony Knerr : Case Studies
NTHONY KNERR and ASSOCIATES was asked by the Radcliffe College Board of Trustees in November 1997 to assist in preparations for, and to facilitate, a major strategic planning retreat to be held in January 1998.
The goal of the retreat was to develop a set of major options for repositioning the College and redefining its relationship with Harvard University, to which Radcliffe had delegated responsibility for the education of undergraduate women almost three decades earlier.
With the merger, Radcliffe ended its existence as a separate, independent corporation and became the youngest of the ten faculties within Harvard, one of just a handful of institutes of advanced study in the world and the only institute for advanced study within a research university.

John Radcliffe, known by contemporaries as ‘the Aesculapius of his age’, had a great reputation as a physician in the late Seventeenth century, and has proved to be one of Oxford University’s leading benefactors.
Radcliffe is said to have pointed to a skeleton and a couple of vials declaring ‘This is Radcliffe’s library!’ He was obliged to resign from his job at Lincoln in 1677, when under the statutes of the College he was called to take holy orders.
Until 1885, the Radcliffe Infirmary was a University institution, governed by University officers and often staffed by Fellows of the colleges.

Other women's colleges, like nearby Wellesley, have old-fashioned rites of passage like "running a hoop" that once indicated who would marry first, but has now been reinvented to indicate who will be successful.
Such vestiges of the old finishing-school persona of women's colleges might seem endangered, especially at Radcliffe, one of the venerable "seven sisters" consortium of women's colleges and alma mater of Helen Keller and Gertrude Stein.
In 1975, Harvard and Radcliffe admissions offices were combined, and the limit on the number of women undergraduates was abolished.

When Harvard College, its sibling institution within Harvard University, decided to accept female students, the school was left with a huge endowment and no students.
The bureaucrats running Radcliffe responded by running a fellowship program for female scholars, nearly all of whom were older than college age and working on obscure academic subjects.
Radcliffe faded into oblivion and eventually most of their endowment was stolen by the larger university.

Linda Maxson, dean of the UI College of Liberal Arts, said it is fitting for Kerber to be the inaugural recipient of this award.

By the time Radcliffe came into the picture in 1990, we had agreed that teaching our seminars would be counted in the regular workload of faculty members, rather than being done as an overload, a second job, as was too often true of women's--and women's studies--work.
Radcliffe provided the essential funding for released time and an infrastructure for arranging course credit, both crucial contributions to this major experiment in women's higher education.
Radcliffe's participation was also key: the institutional home and financial support that Radcliffe provided enabled member institutions to work together peaceably and to avoid divisive competition about funding and resource allocation.
