Milwaukee-Downer College (WI)

Lawrence University was formed in 1964 through the consolidation of Lawrence College (1847) and Milwaukee-Downer College that was the result of a 1895 merger of Milwaukee Female College (1851) and Downer College (founded as Wisconsin Female College in 1855). 

The Lawrence University Archives offers photographs and both written and oral histories reflecting experiences of students attending Milwaukee-Downer College.

Lynne H. Kleinman's "The Milwaukee-Downer Woman" (1997) are available as .pdf files for download.
