Antoinette Frederick papers

Identifier: M040


In 1979 Asa Knowles, President of Northeastern University, hired Boston-area freelance writer Antoinette Frederick to write the second volume of the official history of Northeastern University.  The work took two years to complete and was published in 1982 under the title "Northeastern University An Emerging Giant: 1959-1975."  She again collaborated with Knowles for the 1986 publication, "Shawmut: 150 Years of Banking, 1836-1986."  Frederick returned to Northeastern University in 1990 to compile the third volume of the University's official history, "Northeastern University Coming of Age: The Ryder Years, 1975-1989," which was published in 1995.
