Recent research on the history of Classical scholarship and education in South Africa has neglected the role that women have played in their development. This article seeks to begin to fill this lacuna by surveying some of the experiences of women involved in Classical education at Huguenot College, Wellington, an institution founded by the Dutch Reformed Church moderator, Andrew Murray, and modelled on Mount Holyoke Seminary in Connecticut. The focus of the article will be on the years between 1898 and 1950, and will also include brief biographies of some of the women who were trained or who taught at this institution.
