Description

Soon after his appointment as Dean of Harvard Medical School, though before he assumed that office, Robert Higgins Ebert (1914-1996) delivered this address at Vassar, at that time still a women's college. Ebert states, "I believe in education for women, and I believe in equal opportunities for women in the learned professions as well as some which are not so learned. I believe that women can do everything that men can do as well as one or two things which in spite [of] considerable ingenuity men have never quite been able to accomplish."

The associated report on the speech is reproduced from a student newspaper, the Vassar miscellany.

A large collection of Dr. Ebert's professional and personal papers, as well as archival records from his tenure as Dean of the Harvard Medical School, are all preserved in the Countway and available through its Center for the History of Medicine.
