William Johnson Matthews' Class
Despite opportunities for genders to mix in some classes and clubs, there was certainly still gender segregation heavily enforced at Milligan. For example, in the early days of Milligan College, the business institute at the College offered a special women’s business course, as opposed to the regular business course offerings. The two photos Aunt Betty Cox’s Class (1891-1894) and William Johnson Matthews’ Class (1894) show groups strictly segregated by gender. It is unclear why these photos show this segregation – it could be simply for a photo, but seems more likely that they are representative of some kind of group.
