The First Four

Posted by bgsuenglish on October 17, 2013

Here’s a post from Simon Morgan-Russell, Professor in English and newly appointed Dean of the Honors College:

[T]his short film is perhaps a little tangential to English at BGSU, but it’s about the first four female faculty hired at Lehigh University and the obstacles they faced as female academics in the 1970s – interesting perspectives, certainly. Of the four, three of them (Barbara, Rosemary, and Betsy) all taught both myself and Stephannie (Gearhart).  Barbara was the chair of both our dissertations) and touched our lives in significant ways . . . as well as the lives of other BGSU students who went to Lehigh for graduate study, such as Nate Eastman, Liz Vogstberger, and Emily Shreve
