Many distinguished medievalists visited Cornell to deliver lectures, including Eileen Power, the first female professor of economic history at the London School of Economics and a visiting professor at Barnard College. Power was the author of Medieval Nunneries c. 1275 to 1535 (Cambridge University Press, 1924) and Medieval People (Cambridge University Press, 1926). In 1930 the Goldwin Smith Foundation sponsored a series of lectures, including one by Power on “Medieval Women.”
