History / Biographical Note
The Women's Graduate Club grew out of the 1895 Barnard Graduate Club, according to Anna Campbell in History of the Women's Graduate Club of Columbia University, 1895-1925. The Club was known as "Woman's Graduate Club" in 1897, later changing its name to the "Women's Graduate Club." No information is available about the Club's demise.
Barnard College and Columbia University alumnus Juliana (Saunders) Haskell (A.B., 1904; A.M., 1905; Ph.D., 1908) sat on the Executive Board in 1938-39. Club records may indicate other administrative roles she held in the Graduate Club. Haskell also served as adviser to women graduate students beginning in 1919 and advisor to the Committee on Women's Residence Halls in 1922. She taught Germanic Languages and Literatures at Barnard from 1908 until her retirement in 1940.
