Emma Willard School

A Closer Look

Historians have noted that both Cornelia Whipple, Henry Whipple's first wife, and Mary Mills Whipple, wife of George Whipple (Henry's brother) attended the Emma Willard School in New York. This very progressive women's "seminary" provided a high level of education for women. One woman who attended this school at about the same time as Cornelia and Mary was women’s rights activist Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

The Emma Willard School still provides education for young women. You can also learn more about Emma Willard's life on the school's website.
