Brenda Silver Is Retiring From the Dartmouth Faculty After Almost 40 Years of Teaching

Dartmouth College is losing one of its most longstanding woman faculty members.

Brenda R. Silver, the Mary Wheelock Professor of English, is retiring from the faculty at Dartmouth College. She joined the faculty in 1972, the same year that women first-year students were admitted to the college. At Dartmouth, she was instrumental in the founding of the women and gender studies program. She is the author of Virginia Woolf Icon (University of Chicago Press, 1999).

A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Silver spent three years on a Fulbright scholarship in London. She returned to the United States to complete a Ph.D. at Harvard University. This fall she will be an adjunct professor at Trinity College in Dublin.
