Mary Woolley & Jeannette Marks: Life, Love, & Letters

Mary Woolley and Jeannette Marks were educators and partners who lived and worked at Mount Holyoke College during the early 1900s. The letters and photographs in this exhibition will introduce you to their life together, from their first meeting as Wellesley College professor and student to their retirement in upstate New York. We hope that these materials will inspire you to visit the Mount Holyoke College Archives and Special Collections, and learn more about these women and their important place in the history of the College.

With support from Samantha Snodgrass '18; Archives and Special Collections staff, Deborah Richards, Special Collections Archivist, and Leslie Fields, Head of Archives and Special Collections; and Digital Assets and Preservation Services staff: James Gehrt, Digitization Center Coordinator, and Shaun Trujillo, Digital Collections and Metadata Lead.
