On Her Own Terms

This chapter discusses the investments Alexander made in the form of her patronage of graduate student research. She not only established a two-year research assistantship, but also contributed and committed herself to the graduate program in paleontology. Alexander used her field experience to recommend collecting sites to students, and funded several research projects and trips. Mary Erickson and Barbara Blanchard, the first two women who were finally accepted onto the program of the Museum of Vertebrae Zoology, are introduced. The chapter ends with an account of an expedition Alexander took with Joseph Grinnell's widow, Hilda, as well as a list of her final gifts to the museum.

Keywords:   investments, graduate student research, research assistantship, graduate program, paleontology, Mary Erickson, Barbara Blanchard
