Student Letters


Browse the Collection:


The Student Letters collection contains letters from Vassar students primarily during the nineteenth century.  The letters were written by students to family, friends, and Vassar faculty, with some letters received by students from family and friends, concerning life at Vassar, their studies, social events, and family affairs.

The Fannie Aaron letters were donated by Judith and Louis Friedman in 2014, and their digitization was made possible by a generous grant from Dr. Georgette Bennett in honor of Dr. Leonard Polonsky CBE. We are grateful to Dr. Bennett, the Friedmans, and the rest of Fannie Aaron's family for their support.
