Abstract

The 21 June News & Comment article by Faye Flam ``Still a chilly climate for women'' (p. 1604) wrongly states that women were barred from graduate programs at MIT, Caltech, and Harvard as recently as the 1960s. Actually, it was the undergraduate programs that were closed to women. Several readers have pointed out that many women earned graduate degrees from those universities well before 1960.
