Note
At head of title: Harvard University.

The Harvard examinations for women were instituted by the Woman's Education Association. The purpose was to certify a high level of attainment in what were considered essential branches of knowledge. The examinations were not a part of the Harvard University admission process. They were used to determine admission to Radcliffe College when that institution was later established.
