Tufts Fact

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.
