TLS - Typed Letter Signed

Typed letter signed by Susan Mills, who founded Mills College, the first women's college west of the Rockies. October 28, 1908. 11" x 8.5" inches. This letter is addressed to Dr. Clifton Price, a professor of Latin at UC Berkeley. In it, Mills states: " It is a comfort that you are with us. Some time in the near future, I would like to have you speak to the entire school for a half hour about the importance of studying Latin."

In 1871 Mills moved the school to Oakland, California and the school was incorporated in 1877. The school became Mills College in 1885. In 1890, after serving for decades as principal (under two presidents as well), Susan became the President of the college and held the position for 19 years. Susan Mills was Principal of Mills from 1852-1890, and President from 1890-1909. Mills was leading the way for women's education. In very good condition.
