Extent: 3.5 linear feet
The Chinese Scholarship Committee was established by Professor Lucy Martin Donnelly in 1916, to provide Chinese women an education who could not otherwise obtain one in China. It was also intended to “deepen the understanding between China and the United States by bringing to this country the type of students who would represent the highest Chinese traditions, and who would in turn interpret to China our western civilization” (“Bryn Mawr Chinese Scholarship Committee,” pamphlet). The fund, as established, provided for one annual scholarship to a Chinese woman who wished to attend Bryn Mawr College. The Chinese Scholarship Committee records documents the efforts of Bryn Mawr College diverisify its student body and to introduce to its students a different culture. The collection houses scattered financial and administrative records, as well as a nice body of correspondence from and about the Chinese students who directly benfitted from the fund. The collection is arranged into four series: "Administrative records, 1916-1988," "Financial records, 1916-1988," "General correspondence, 1916-1988" and "Margaret Wood Keith papers, 1916-1988."

Creator:
Wofford, Harris, 1926-
Extent: 381 cartons
As a former United States Senator from Pennsylvania, chair of America's Promise, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service, and Special Assistant to President John F. Kennedy, Harris Wofford has dedicated much of his career and personal life to advocating for public service. The Harris Wofford papers contain over 400 linear feet of extensive notes, research files, writings, correspondence, political papers and audio/visual recordings documenting an impressive career of a citizen passionate about activism. While not entirely complete in its scope of Wofford’s life due to many key records from the 1960s being lost in a fire early in his career, the collection nonetheless provides an invaluable resource for those interested in politics, human rights, public service, education, and law. Furthermore, the collection is noteworthy in that researchers will be able to examine several themes developed throughout Wofford’s career, from his grassroots involvement in academia at Bryn Mawr College and SUNY at Old Westbury to federal politics and civil rights to global involvement in volunteerism. The collection is divided into twelve series: “I. Personal,” “II. State University of New York at Old Westbury,” “III. Bryn Mawr College,” “IV. Pennsylvania private legal career,” “V. Alan Cranston Campaign for President,” “IV. Pennsylvania State Democratic Chairman,” “VII. Pennsylvania Secretary of Labor and Industry,” “VIII. United States Senate,” “IX. Public service and professional affiliations,” “X. Writings,” “XI. Subject files” and “XII. Audio/Visual and other media formats.” (View full finding aid.)
