    This is a collection of either autobiographies or contemporary records of the lives of eight leaders of nineteenth-century American women educators. Involved in the foundation of women’s schools and colleges in various parts of America, they played very important roles to form the American women’s intellectual background. Like Mary Lyon’s influence on Emily Dickinson, they are not only important source materials to study women’s history and education, but also better to understand the philosophical aspects of American women’s literature.
