Elizabeth is inspired by Elizabeth Agassiz. She devised a plan to provide a higher education equal to a Harvard degree to women. The organization that came from this plan came to be known as the Harvard Annex, and Elizabeth was its first president. She believed that men and women deserve the same opportunities in quality of education. Although she was a smart leader, gifted fundraiser and well equipped educator, Harvard declined her numerous offers to merge. Nothing could deter her, so she continued to advocate and in 1894 Radcliffe College was chartered.
