Scope and Contents

From the Series:

This series includes papers and correspondence relevant to William & Mary’s Women’s Studies Program’s 1996 inaugural Braithwaite Lecture. Named after Cutler’s aunt, the annual Braithwaite Lecture memorializes the ambitions of Minnie Braithwaite, who unsuccessfully petitioned the all-male College in 1896 to allow her to take a chemistry course. Cutler was a honorary guest at this inaugural lecture, which has continued every year since its conception under the university’s now-renamed Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies program.
