Sands, William A. BROWN UNIVERSITY - PHOTOS OF SEVENTEEN WOMEN OF THE CLASS OF 1910. Gelatin Silver prints, 1910. 17 portrait photos, each housed in a folder of heavy wove paper with a protective sheet of glassine over the photo. Each signed in pencil by Sands, who was a photographer active in Providence in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, associated with the firms of Rose & Sands, and Sands & Brady, who also apparently worked on his own. Each photo is also signed on its verso or on the folder by its subject, sometimes also with an inscription - apparently the women exhanged photos and signed them for the recipient. The photos printed on sheets 8 1/2 x 6 inches, the folders 9 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches. Brown Universty was opened to women in 1891. Classes were held separately from the men's classes, but covered the same material and were taught by the same professors. Pembroke became a separate college affiliated with the University in 1928, and was merged back into Brown University in 1971. The women in the photos are: M.C. Williams, Isabel Stuart Wood, Elizabeth Morrison, Alice S. Maile, Alice F. Cook, Mary Clegg Suffa, Caroline Willard Mortas, Marion Elisabeth Dean, Alice J. Sweet, Annie E. Burnside, Helen E. Gindele, Elizabeth M. Boardman, Florence A. Crossley, Harriet Josephine Buck, Charlotte M. Huntoon, "Tommy" Tucker, and Stella Risley Clemence.
