Collection Description & Creator Information


The collection consists of 338 black and white prints made from digital copies of photographs taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt for LIFE Magazine in September, 1969, when women undergraduates admitted as part of the first fully coeducational Class of 1973 arrived on campus. The photo story "Lady into Tiger" ran in the September 19, 1969 issue of LIFE, featuring six photographs.

Not all of the people who appear in the photographs have been identified for description. People identified at the time of processing who appear in the photographs include: Beth Rom, Beverly Cayford, Elaine Chan, John Sease, Julia O'Brien, June Fletcher, Kathleen Molony, Lisa Dorota (Tebbe), Lisa Halaby (Noor Al Hussein), Lizabeth (Liz) Cohen, Marcia Boraas, Maureen Ferguson, Melissa Hines, Robin Herman, and Sylvia Morris. The Blair Hall Arch and Pyne Hall, the dormitory where the women undergraduates were housed, appear in many of the photographs, all of which were taken outdoors on the Princeton campus.
