Letter from President Kneller about Baccalaureate in Women's Studies

More than four years after the first meeting of the Brooklyn College Women's Organization, the Women's Studies Program co-founders received this letter from Brooklyn College President John Kneller. A major victory in securing legitimacy for both the program and women's studies as an academic field, this letter informed the program faculty of the Board of Higher Education's approval for an accredited baccalaureate in Women's Studies, effective September 1974.
