WHEN YALE WENT CO-ED!

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6; 7 PM

ANNE GARDINER PERKINS
will discuss her narrative nonfiction book, YALE NEEDS WOMEN: How the First Group of Girls Rewrote the Rules of an Ivy League Giant. In September 1969, Yale enrolled its first women undergraduates, and the competition to be one of those young women pioneers was so intense that only the most brilliant and talented girls got in. Among those first female students were two graduates of high schools in Dayton and Oakwood, one from Dayton’s Fairview High School (now closed) and Oakwood High School.

Yale’s announcement that after 268 years as a male-only institution it was going coed, and Princeton’s two months later, finally broke the coeducation taboo in America’s top colleges. By 1973, the vast majority of elite all-male campuses had admitted women students too. It should be noted that it was not an easy path for either the female or male students. SOURCEBOOKS

Dr. Perkins, PhD is an award-winning historian, an expert in higher education, and a graduate of Yale University. She is a Rhodes Scholar who received her PhD in high education from the University of Massachusetts Boston and her Master’s in public administration from Harvard.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7; 7 PM

MATTHEW GOODMAN will discuss his book, THE CITY GAME: Triumph, Scandal and a Legendary Basketball Team. The 1949-50 City College Beavers carried an era’s brightest hopes—racial harmony, social mobility, and the triumph of the underdog—but their success was soon followed by a shocking fall from grace. It is rich with period detail and recalls a New York City rife with corruption, when gangsters, gamblers, and crooked cops controlled the streets. But it is also about friendship and youth, loyalty and deceit, politics, and economics.

The basketball team comprised of solely Jewish and African American players, under the guidance of the legendary former player Nat Holman, would stun the basketball world by becoming the only team in history to win the NIT and NCAA tournaments in the same year. Not long after the celebratory season however, the starting five players were arrested by NYC detectives for conspiring with gamblers to shave points. The story centers on Eddie Roman, a white man and Floyd Laye, a black man, each caught up in the scandal, each searching for a path to personal redemption. BALLANTINE BOOKS

Matthew Goodman has also written Eighty Days: Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland’s History Making Race Around the World; The Sun and the Moon: The Remarkable True Accounts of Hoaxers, Showman, Dueling Journalists, and Lunar Man-Bats in Nineteenth Century New York; and Jewish Food: The World at Table..
