A struggle arose over who would succeed Mary Emma Woolley as president of Mount Holyoke College in 1937. Over her 36 year tenure, Woolley had transformed Mount Holyoke into an elite women's college in which leadership in the administration and faculty was almost exclusively female. Beginning in 1933, a group of male trustees determined to change the college. This book tells the story of how this group dominated the search process and ultimately convinced the majority of the trustees to offer the presidency to Mr. Roswell Gray Ham. This narrative could not have been told until after 1999, when material relating to the search process (memoranda, minutes of executive board sessions, letters, etc.) became available. The participants in this story speak in their own voices--faculty, alumnae, alumnae trustees on the search committee, male trustees who engineered the appointment, and American and international feminists. Among the prominent persons, in addition to outgoing president Woolley, is trustee Frances Perkins, U.S. Secretary of Labor, also an alumna. Woolley, the vast majority of the faculty, and a significant number of alumnae were strongly opposed to the hiring of Ham, and they fought back (unsuccessfully). The opposition also included many from outside the Mount Holyoke community, including the leadership of the American Association of University Women. This strong opposition has led historian Joyce Avrech Berkman to conclude, in an historiographical foreword, that the book breaks new ground in our understanding of 1930s feminism.

This book describes how student affairs organizations, programs, services, and personnel assist an institution in attaining its educational purposes by promoting student involvement in out-of-class learning opportunities. "Student Involvement: The Key to Promoting Student Learning and Growth" (John Schuh) discusses the challenges facing higher education institutions and highlights the role of student affairs. "Characteristics of Involving Colleges" (George Kuh) summarizes the five clusters of factors and conditions common to involving colleges. Seven chapters present case analyses of seven involving colleges: (1) "Making a Large University Feel Small: The Iowa State University Story" (John Schuh, with commentary by Arthur Sandeen); (2) "Caretakers of the Collegiate Culture: Student Affairs at Stanford University" (George Kuh, with commentary by William Gurowitz); (3) "Emergence of a Metroversity: The University of Louisville Case" (Carney Strange, with commentary by Carmen Witt); (4) "Where Achievement is the Rule: The Case of Xavier University of Louisiana" (Rosalind Andreas, with commentary by Rodger Summers); (5) "A Community of Women Empowering Women: Mount Holyoke College" (Elizabeth Whitt, with commentary by Daryl Smith); (6) "Checking of the Truth: The Case of Earlham College" (Lee Krehbiel and Carney Strange, with commentary by Frances Lucas-Tauchar); and (7) "An Eclipse of the Usual: The Evergreen State College" (James Lyons, with commentary by David Dodson). The final chapter, "Conclusions and Recommendations" (George Kuh and John Schuh), draws conclusions about student affairs organizations and personnel at involving colleges. (NB)

Ample evidence has been provided that women historically have suffered numerous social, political, and institutional barriers to their entrance and success in the sciences. The articles in this anthology refocus the discussion and reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the issues surrounding women in the sciences. While the barriers that women have faced as researchers, subjects of research, students of science, and theorists have been well documented, this anthology breaks new ground. It presents the ways women succeed in the sciences, overcome these historical barriers, and contribute to the social practice of science and the philosophy of science in both theory and practice.

This special volume is dedicated to the contributions of women ichthyologists. Three colleagues were selected to represent all women ichthyologists, Ethelwynn Trewavas (ET), Rosemary Lowe-McConnell (Ro) and Eugenie Clark (Genie). All have had distinguished professional careers and have contributed in their own ways to their science. The career of each is highlighted by a personal interview with one of the editors of the volume, a bibliography of their lifetime publications, and a biography of their careers. Questions of historical inequities and current controversies in the treatment of women ichthyologists by their peers are raised and addressed by the women themselves. The personal and professional influences of these three women, and other women ichthyologists, are highlighted. A survey article by Pat Brown brings a number of women ichthyologists to the attention of a broader audience, and points the way for a more comprehensive historical consideration of the accomplishments and contributions of women ichthyologists. The volume continues with 16 solicited and contributed papers. ET's studies of taxonomy and life history are echoed in papers on the taxonomy and systematics of marine angelfishes, and of freshwater bitterlings, a review of reproduction in the North Atlantic ichthyofauna, and a comparison of reproductive styles and systematics of African minnows. Ro's studies on ecology, life history and behaviour are paralleled by papers on growth and metabolism in piranha, the community structure in tide pool fishes, and the social system and reproductive patterns in groupers. Genie's pioneering work on sexual roles and sex change, and her field studies of the behaviour of marine fishes are reflected in papers on gonadal structure and environmental sex determination in brook lamprey, sexual patterns in hawkfish, reproduction and systematics in phallostethids, gonadal structure and systematics in gobiids, reproductive and predator avoidance behaviour in razorfish, early ontogeny of an African mouth brooder, and alternative life histories in killifish.

In the 116 year history of the Nobel Prize in Physics, only two women have won the award; Marie Curie (1903) and Maria Mayer (1963). During the 60 years between those awards, several women did work of similar calibre. This book focuses on those women, providing biographies for each that discuss both how they made their discoveries and the gender-specific reception of those discoveries. It also discusses the Nobel process and how society and the scientific community's treatment of them were influenced by their gender.
