Philanthropy, science, the arts -- these are just three of the many fields that have been influenced by the pioneering efforts of the women whose records are housed by the Rockefeller Archive Center.

Though often overshadowed by the prominent men in the Rockefeller family and other philanthropic organizations, these women strove to both redefine and expand the boundaries of socially acceptable fields for women in the 19th and 20th centuries. Whether involved in breakthroughs in science or in the establishment and administration of philanthropic institutions, these women played significant roles in their chosen fields, even if not always in the limelight.

This exhibit aims to showcase the varied passions and talents of the women who have been associated with the organizations and records at the Rockefeller Archive Center.
