About the Project

The Vassar Encyclopedia project was conceived by Vassar's first college historian, Elizabeth A. Daniels '41. Work began on the encyclopedia in the summer of 2004. Many people have generously donated their time to this project. Articles are written by Daniels herself, her successor, Dean Emeritus of the College and Professor Emeritus of English Colton Johnson, their student assistants, summer Ford Scholars, alumnae/i, faculty, students, staff and others with interests in various aspects of Vassar history.
