The women of a state university: an illustration of the working of coeducation in the Middle West.
The University of Wisconsin began admitting women in 1858, far in advance of many other universities in the nation. It was not the first in Wisconsin though, as Milton Academy, Ripon College, and Lawrence University admitted women in the 1840s and early 1850s.
