Bonnets to Boardrooms: Women’s Stories from a Historic College Town

Compiled & edited by Eugenia Poporad Vanek

This book features the recollections of fifty-two Oberlin women from a great variety of backgrounds and experiences. All were born between 1895 and 1959. Most were longtime residents of the community. Some lived in Oberlin their entire lives; others did not. Some were affiliated with Oberlin College. The group includes teachers, mothers, administrators, wives, concerned citizens, and community activists, and some were trailblazers. The stories in this book would probably not have been preserved for future generations had they not been collected as part of the Oberlin Oral History Project.
