Coeds Back on Track After Derailment

A historical columnist details the history of women's integration into the University, beginning with Caroline Preston Davis's petition in 1892 to sit for exams that would enable her to earn a degree in mathematics. The reporter discusses the General Assembly's 1920 decision to admit women to UVA's graduate schools, and the decision to make UVA fully coed in 1970.
