description:
The purpose of this 1981 study was to document the history of women faculty at Harvard University. Of the then 13 women tenured in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard in 1981, 11 professors and the husband of one deceased professor participated in interviews. Nine of these women were of foreign background and one was African American. The interviews focused on the development of their careers, the challenges they faced, their educational and occupational histories, life histories, and demographic information. The 12 participants took part in intensive, open-ended interviews. The interview followed a rough chronological outline and produced a biographical sketch of each participant, in addition to information about academic work, career, and view of Harvard. The interviews were transcribed and approved by the participants. The Murray Research Archive has the original tapes and the interview transcripts for all participants. Each professor made her own confidentiality agreements with Dr. Walzer. Because it is not possible to disguise the participants' identities, access to some transcripts is restricted and requires special permission. Audio Data Availability Note: This study contains audio data that have been digitized. There are 78 audio files available.
