The Hankey Center, named in honor of Joan Hankey, USN (retired) ’59, and her family, was dedicated on June 7, 2003, to house the C. Elizabeth Boyd ’33 Archives and the Barron Blewett Hunnicutt Classics Gallery.
The Hankey Center for the History of Women’s Education serves as the central resource on the history of Wilson College through the rich repository of materials and artifacts contained in the C. Elizabeth Boyd ’33 Archives. We provide support for academic programs by making the Center’s staff and resources available to the Wilson community, as well as to scholars, independent researchers and educators in the broader community.
