Dartmouth's First Woman of Science


Dartmouth's First Woman of Science


Celia Chen '78 writes into the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine to honor the late Hannah T. Croasdale after her death in 1999. She describes Croasdale as a woman “ahead of her time” and “one of the few female faculty members on campus not yet hospitable to women” when they first met in 1976.
