On Her Own Terms

This chapter introduces Phoebe Hearst, Jane Sather, and Cora Flood, the three women who were also the university's greatest benefactors about the same time as Alexander. It highlights several donations given by Hearst, Sather, Flood, and Elizabeth Boalt. Hearst's donations were mostly land and structures such as the Hearst Gymnasium, while Sather started the Sather Law Library Fund and donated money to build the Sather Gate and the Sather Tower. Flood donated two residences, the Menlo Park estate and her San Francisco residence. Boalt donated money to establish a law school and the construction of Boalt Hall. The chapter also studies Alexander's apparent dislike for publicity, and reveals that unlike these women, her name does not appear on any structure in the university.
