A Glimpse at Jackson College for Women 1910-1924

Dorm Life

According to Tufts College Catalogues from the turn of the 19th century, Albert Metcalf of Newton donated money in the fall of 1894 for the creation of the first women's dormitory on the Tufts campus. Soon Start House and Richardson House were added as housing options for those female students not living with relatives in the area.
