Through a collection of diaries, alumni memories, and personal
stories, "In a Man's World" views life at a boarding school,
Phillips Exeter Academy, through the eyes of the wives and
daughters who lived on campus. Until now, little has been written
about the lives of these women, especially during the years when
the school had an all-male faculty and student body.
When women first came to live on campus, the male faculty were
unaccustomed to the presence of women. As they dealt with the male
dominated culture, the wives imparted the feminine perspective to a
previously masculine culture. The daughters contributed their own
influence as the only eligible females on campus.
The story begins in 1781 with Elizabeth Phillips, wife of the
founder John Phllips and the years when the students lived in
boarding houses. The memories continue the story to cover the
earliest days of the 20th century to the first years of coeducation
in the 1970's and '80's. This narrative covers 200 years of the
lives of women living in a man's world, and their interaction with
a predominantly male culture.
