Scope and Contents of the Materials

Collection Historical Note

Incorporated in 1886, Shephardson College for Women was an institution that provided both preparatory and collegiate education to female students.

From the point of its conception, it had been an idea to make it a female division of Denison University in order to make the University coeducational, however that did not officially occur until 1900. From 1887-1900, Shepardson College operated as an independent school, named for Dr. Daniel Shepardson in recognition of his work in furthering women's education in the Young Ladies' Institute, another Granville female college. 

In 1900, Shepardson was incorporated under the Denison University umbrella, which included the following divisions: the Granville College department (men), the Shepardson College department (women), Doane Academy (preparatory/high school students), a Conservatory of Music, The School of Art, and The School of Military Science.

Dr. Daniel Shepardson's son, Francis Shepardson, would later be the author of Denison's 1931 centennial history, in which he gives a detailed account of its history in chapter 12, available as an e-book via HathiTrust. Further information can be found in Wally Chessman's history of the University, also available as an e-book via HathiTrust.
