The Women’s College Biographical Register project was established in 1995 to document the College’s students, its academic and administrative staff and the members of its governing Council. Using sources from the College’s extensive archives, three registers have now been published which list all students who entered the College between 1892 and 1968.

Compiled and edited by Dr Rosemary Annable, the three volumes provide details of students’ family background, schooling, University achievements and subsequent careers. Information has been gathered from published and archival sources, and from questionnaires distributed to students and family members.

More than two thousand women are represented in these landmark volumes, providing a significant survey of the lives and families of women in higher education in Australia
