PULLMAN, Wash. — A collection of photos featuring women at Washington State University during the last century will be on display March 15 through April 21 at the New Holland Library Atrium.
The display, “Women at WSU: Celebrating a Century of Graduate Education,” features photographs of women who have played a significant role in WSU’s history, said Tori Byington, a coordinator of the project.
The original display, begun more than 10 years ago by a graduate student, has grown to more than 100 photographs, said Rebecca Steever, a production supervisor for Cooperative Extension and the College of Agriculture and Home Economics and a co-creator of the project. A committee working on the project will add at least 40 more photos, including administrators and graduates.
The display celebrates both a 100 years of graduate education at the institution and Women’s History Month. Over the last century, WSU has offered more than 250 graduate degree programs, and part of the display highlights the first female graduate in each program.
