Trustees (1836-)


The first female trustee, Sarah (Stoddard) Williston, was appointed in 1884.

List of Members of the Board of Trustees

The following list is of individuals who have served on the Mount Holyoke Board of Trustees, which was established in 1836. This list is based on sources in the Mount Holyoke College Board of Trustees Biographical Files Record Group, which also inclues information about most of these individuals. The personal papers of Alumnae trustees Virginia Apgar, Mary Phylinda Dole, Janet Brewster Murrow, and Francis Perkins are also available in the Archives and Special Collections.

The list is arranged alphabetically by the last name of each person, and includes the dates of each person's service on the board. The list does not include the names of Mount Holyoke principals and presidents who also served as trustees. This list also gives the class affiliation or designation for trustees who have attended Mount Holyoke and the birth name(s) of these individuals (when different from the name under which each person served as a trustee).
