Saint Mary's College (NC)

The Heritage: The Education of Women at St. Mary's College, Raleigh, North Carolina, 1842-1982 by Martha Stoops covers the history from the founding in 1842 through 1982.  Stoops crafted an exceptional institutional history that is packed with details of student and faculty life.  The institution in Raleigh, NC discontinued the college program in 1998 and continues as a college preparatory boarding and day school.  A timeline of key historical events is available from the St. Mary's website.

Alice Brown's "Case Study of a College that Closed: Saint Mary's College," in Changing Course: Reinventing Colleges, Avoiding Closure also includes a chapter devoted to Saint Mary's.
