Boston-Bouvé College’s History Featured in New Online Exhibit
A Proud Past: Boston-Bouvé College, 1913-1977 (available on the Internet at the website below)
The multi-media web exhibit, A Proud Past, displays selected historical materials from Boston- Bouvé College, now housed in the Northeastern University Libraries, Archives and Special Collections Department. The Boston School of Physical Education was founded in 1913 to instruct women in physical education. Now known as the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, the College merged with Northeastern University in 1964.
A Proud Past makes available online a wide array of historical documentation about the growth of the College, its founders, the development of the curricula, and its vibrant student life. These primary sources illustrate both the history of women's education as well as the development of the fields of physical therapy and physical education. At the site, visitors may see photographs of Bouvé’s leaders and students in the classroom, at camp, and at leisure. Visitors may also read letters, brochures, meeting minutes, reminiscences, and flyers that reveal many perspectives of Bouvé’s rich history. The site also contains animated models of required physical education costumes, video footage of Bouvé campers, and audio interviews with Bouvé leaders and alumni.
This exhibit is part of the Archives' mission to preserve and provide access to the history of Northeastern University. The Bouvé historical collections are also open to research in the Archives Reading Room.
