Biographical Sources of the 19th Century Pioneers of the American Womenâ€™s Education
This is a collection of either autobiographies or contemporary records of the lives of eight leaders of nineteenth-century American women educators. Involved in the foundation of womenâ€™s schools and colleges in various parts of America, they played very important roles to form the American womenâ€™s intellectual background. Like Mary Lyonâ€™s influence on Emily Dickinson, they are not only important source materials to study womenâ€™s history and education, but also better to understand the philosophical aspects of American womenâ€™s literature.
