If the '52 coed thinks she had a
hard time filling blanks and going
through the rigors of orientation
week, she should look back eighty-
two years to the first coed and the
trouble she had entering the Uni-
versity of Michigan.
In 1870 Miss Madelon Stockwell
entered the University after years
of preparation and a long period
of ridicule by people, mostly of her
own sex, who opposed higher edu-
cation for women.
) * *
MISS STOCKWELL, daughter
of a professor at Albion, had stu-
died there and at Kalamazoo Col-
lege before coming here as a
sophomore, where she graduated
two years later with highest hon-
ors because of the efforts of Mrs.
L. H. Stone.
Mrs. Stone herself desired a
higher education but met with
too much opposition.
When her husband was appoint-
ed in charge of the Kalamazoo
branch of the University in 1842,
Mrs. Stone became principal of
the ladies' department.
* * *
SEVERAL YEARS later state
funds to the branch were cut off
and it became Kalamazoo College.
From these top positions in a
growing college she and her hus-
band took an active interest in
co-education and were instru-
mental in helping Miss Stock-
well become the first coed at the
Dr. and Mrs. Stone and a friend
who happened to be a regent, ex-
amined the law and found noth-
ing in it that could justly exclude
women from the University.
* * *
SO, AFTER A much more rigid
examination than was given men,
Miss Stockwell was reluctantly
permitted to enter.
Mrs. Stone's fight for wo-
men's rights in education was

the state legislature admitting

She said in a letter to 'the re-
gents '.... I now see and feel that
an institution is not co-education-
al until it is co-educating. Until
men and women, both and to-
gether form the teaching force
and influence of that institution."
Through her own desire for a
higher education, Mrs. Stone was
responsible for helping the first
coed enter the University and thus
set an example that was followed
by many other universities which
