August 21-December 18, 2015
Women at Norwich have been an integral part of the success of the University. While many women during the early years of the Academy were “behind the scenes” their contributions were important, lasting and helped shape the institution Norwich is today. This exhibition features many facets of the women who were “first”. First ladies of the Norwich Presidents, first women Cadets in the Corps and first women in fields where they have not traditionally been employed or deployed. Join us for a view into Norwich from perspectives of notables such as Captain Alden Partridge’s wife Anne Partridge, the first eight women to enter the Corps of Cadets as well as today’s Women of Norwich, both Civilian and Cadet.
