    Default Friday Trivia: Helen Magill White

    Helen Magill White was the first woman to earn a Ph.D. in the United States, receiving a doctorate in Greek from Boston University in 1877, the year she turned 24.

    By that time, she was already comfortable being an academic pioneer. She had been the only female student in her class at Boston Public Latin School and a member of the first graduating class at Swarthmore College.

    She was the eldest of six children in a Quaker family. Magill was brought up to believe that she deserved the same education as a man.
