Connecticut College ~ Antique
Chartered in 1911, the founding of the college was a response to Wesleyan University's decision to stop admitting women. Female Wesleyan alumnae, notably Elizabeth C. Wright, convinced others to found this new college, espousing the increasing desire among women for higher education. To that end, the institution was founded – as the Connecticut College for Women. The college then shortened its name to Connecticut College in 1969 when it began admitting men.
