Adoption Followed Years
Of Agitation By Haven
And ParentsIn Country
By ELIZABETH M. SHAW
Unquestioned is the co-ed's right
to the privileges of higher education
as Michigan women today honor the
70th anniversary of the Regent's pas-
sage of the statute enabling women
to enter the University.
It was 70 years ago today, Jan. 5,
1870, during the acting-presidency of
Prof. Henry Ftieze. that the Board
"recognized the right of every resi-
dent of Michigan to the enjoyment of
the privileges afforded by the Uni-
versity" and further affirmed that
"no rule exists in any of the Univer-
sity statutes for the exclusion of
any person from the University who
possesses the requisite literary and
The adoption of the resolution came
after years of agitation for the ad-
mission of women to the portals of
higher education. In the same year,
1855, that the legislature of Michigan
passed an act giving married women
absolute control over their property,
Dr. E. O. Haven, then a professor in
the University, advocated the admis-
sion of women on an equality with
men. Interest in the question con-

President Charles A. Sink of the
tinued, an educators all over the
country were consulted, but most of
them, including President Henry P.
Tappan and the entire faculty of the
University, were opposed to the meas-
Amusing now are the numerous ob-
jections made to the adission of wo-
men to the University. Among the
reasons for disapproval were: that
women were not strong enough phys-
ically to do the work, that they did
not possess the mental qualities nec-
essary to master the higher branches
of knowledge, that it would cause
untold disaster to the moral atmos-
phere of the University, and that it
would lower the standard of require-
ments in the University and turn it
into a mere female seminary.
However, the women came, the first
being Madelon L. Stockwell, '72, later
married to Charles K. Turner of Kala-
mazoo, who entered Feb. 2, 1890. No
others enrolled until the following
term when 11 entered the literary
college, three took up pharmacy, 18
medicine, and two law.
These first corers, being maturef
and very earnest students, took and
maintained the lead in scholarship
in most of the classes. The example
set by Michigan was a precedent soon
followed by other state universities,
for, while some small denominational
colleges had admitted women, all
larger institutions without exception
turned cold shoulders to the co-ed.
The first few years after the in-
novation were not too pleasant for
the girls,'however. Dr. A. B. Crosby of
the medical department of the time.
commenting on the manner in which
professors in that department con-
ducted separate classes for women,
wrote to President Angell before the
latter took office: '"The dear creatures
are . .shut up in a room by them-
selves, and, the decencies of life are
all observed for which each Profes-
sor receives $500 extra pay.
The boys themselves did not take
kindly to the innovation at first. Stu-
dent journalists and local papers
frowned on them and sometimes cast
jibes, and many boarding places were
closed to them, but after a few un-
seemly demonstrations, the boys con-
cluded to make the best of it, and
follow on as best they could the lead-
nrship of these progressive women.
So today, 3,566 women on campus
remember these pioneers who opened
the way for the thousands of co-eds
who were to follow them.
The Apothecaries of the College of
Pharmacy became active as an offi-
cial organization of the campus Dec.
15 upon recognition of the Committee
on Student Affairs of the University.
Organized as a social and educa-
tional club open to all members of
the pharmacy school, the Apothecar-
les chose William Austin, '41P, as
their president; Duane C. Parker,
'41P, vice-president; Marjorie A.
Kern, '41P, secretary; Ronald H.
Chadwick; '41P, treasurer, and David
A. Schlichting, '41P, general chairman
of the annual Apothecaries Ball. Prof.

with the Pan-American Union:
The organization of the orchestra
is still in its incipiency, and as yet
the part that the Music School is to
play in the selection of talent for the
orchestra is not fully defined, Presi-
dent Sink said.
According to releases by the Na-

young musicians will be recruited
through the state offices of the NYA.
Applications for the orchestra, for
which both NYA workers and non-
