Assault – William F. Slocum

Project Summary

This archive focuses on Colorado College’s former president, William F. Slocum. Slocum served as the president during the years 1888-1917, and during this time he essentially built the school’s foundation as a leading liberal arts college, and until recently has been considered a valued leader. However, Slocum was also serially harassing women during his time as president. Through this project, I look at how women described Slocum’s assaults to help contextualize sexual assault in the early 20th century.
