Ready for Your Research: The Elizabeth Hart Frazier and Donald Hart Frazier Papers
The newly processed Hart Frazier Papers provide insight into the joint ministry and life of two pioneering YDS graduates, who continually engaged with questions regarding the place of women in church and society. Donald (B.D. 1938), served throughout the Northeast in Congregational churches and pushed the UCC to consider women within their communities. Elizabeth (B.D. 1940)—one of the first women to graduate from YDS—was ordained in 1972 and provided counseling to those considering abortion, advocated for sex education, and preached from the pulpit the virtue of family planning. The collection includes substantial writings from their half-century of ministry and extensive gathered materials from their work with Planned Parenthood, the UCC, and YDS. The papers are an exceptional resource for those interested in the growth and evolution of the feminist movement and abortion rights advocacy before and after Roe v. Wade in 1973.
