This exhibition documents the implementation of Coeducation in Yale College through the lens of the buildings and spaces of the Yale University campus. Through records, photographs, and audio-visual materials kept at the Yale University Archives, co-curators Charlotte Keathley, Class of 2022 (Ezra Stiles College) and Michael Lotstein, University Archivist invite visitors to experience the many challenges the first women undergraduates faced in creating a community for themselves on a campus conceived of, and built for, male students.
