Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Virginia Judy Esterly Papers contain correspondence, documents, newspaper clippings, periodicals, printed material, pamphlets, and ephemera that document Mrs. Esterly's varied interests in women. The items reflect her interest in domestic workers and household employment, and the national effort to organize these women into unions in the period between the First and Second World Wars. As a Scripps College faculty member and administrator, Mrs. Esterly's syllabi and lectures on her course on the American Home, and speeches made to students, can be found in the papers. Mrs. Esterly was instrumental in establishing the Ida Rust Macpherson Collection, the earliest major collection on women at any women's college in the United States.
