Professor Jeanette Eckman Tuve taught in the History Department from 1965 until 1984. She began her career as an educator teaching high school, and then moved to the university level, earning her doctorate at age 55. Her final book (of four) was published when she was 81. Her work focused on women across a range of experiences. She wrote a book on Russian women physicians and a biography of Florence Ellinwood Allen, the first woman to serve on a state supreme court. In 1986 she conducted a series of oral history interviews with 29 women of eastern European birth or heritage. She was a role model for what is now called the non-traditional or returning student, and she forged a path for women in academe, both as students and faculty. The scholarships given in her name each year are intended to help a new generation of women achieve their academic goals.
The 2022 recipients of the Tuve Scholarship are Emma Norton and Marissa Ostromek.
