In 1893, Henrietta Noble Brown became the first woman to
receive a baccalaureate degree from Tufts. She transferred
from Boston University to be part of the first class of women
students that matriculated in 1892. Brown went on to become a
triple Jumbo—earning masters degrees in both chemistry and
history at Tufts. All three of her children attended the
University, as well as two of her grandchildren.
