A LOOK BACK
n “Women in Engineering,” an article published in the Winter 2012 issue of the
Clarkson
magazine, we attributed the year that women returned to Clarkson to 1964, following a nearly
60-
year absence.
In response to the article, we received a correction in the mail from Norma J. Wagner ’65,
who entered Clarkson with junior standing in the fall of 1963 after completing two years at
Mohawk Valley Community College.
I must contest the assertion that Clarkson ‘made the switch
to coeducation’ in 1964. I was told that Thomas S. Clarkson Memorial College of Technology was
coeducational by charter but simply had not had any female undergraduates in over 60 years.
I applied, was accepted and enrolled in September 1963.”
Wagner shared some of her experiences as a pioneer in STEM education:
I was bitten by the Space Bug on October 5, 1957. At some point
I decided that I wanted to become an aeronautical/astronautical
engineer. It wasn’t long before I was assembling plastic models of
satellites and rockets — and driving my mother crazy. She didn’t
understand where this interest was coming from, but she didn’t
discourage me. My father, on the other hand, was behind me all the
way. He had wanted to study electrical engineering but never got the
opportunity to go to college. At the end of my second year at MVCC, I
reluctantly changed my major from engineering to mathematics [after]
I encountered a course called Dynamics.
Being the only female in a class was nothing new to me. That
had happened in high school. I was, however, the only female in my
department, Engineering Science, at Mohawk Valley Community
College. So being the only female undergraduate at Clarkson
was just the next step up. I grant you that I entered
as a junior and could be discounted on that basis of
integrating” Clarkson. But I did graduate on June 6,
1965,
and at least held my own against
the others in the Mathematics department.
Sincerely,
Norma Wagner
