    Stupid and completely stereotypical. My mother graduated from college in 1936 with a degree in physics and a minor in chemistry. In order to avoid this kind of thinking, she went to New Jersey College for Women, which became Douglas College. She entered under a Jewish quota, which limited the number of Jewish women who could be admitted to the College.

    She wasn’t the only woman there who didn’t make her MRS the chief goal in her life.

    Now, if you’re talking about Princeton in the thirties, this is totally spot on!

    I should have said “despite the stereotypes.” 😀

    proof reading is key 😉

    BTW, the compilation album entitled “Different Strokes” is excellent if you can find it. I have it on vinyl.
