While the first archival documents about lesbians (and later bisexuals) at Mount Holyoke College are dated from the 1960s, women who love other women have been a part of the community for a very long time. President Mary Woolley and Professor Jeannette Marks, for example, had a long and loving partnership throughout the whole first half of the twentieth century. It is also very likely that people of numerous gender identities (who we might call transgender today) have gone to MHC. Again, the Mount Holyoke Archives and Special Collections has few documents that speak explicitly about trans people until the late 1980s. This is a gap we are actively trying to fill, especially with our LGBTQ alum oral history project.
