Mary-Cooke Branch Munford Correspondence

The Papers of Mary-Cooke Branch Munford (1865-1938) of Richmond, Virginia, document her work in various political, educational, social, economic, and inter-racial endeavors. The bulk of the collection covers the period from 1910-1930, when she was most active.

The CO-ORDINATE COLLEGE LEAGUE correspondence concerns Munford's and the League's attempts to convince The University of Virginia to admit women by establishing a coordinate college with its own organization, and its own social, residence and instruction halls. The new college would share the library and laboratories of the University, and students would be taught by some of its faculty.
