        Dr. Dora Neill Raymond, Texas A
        A very signal honor was recently conferred upon Dr. Dora Neill Raymond, Texas A, by the American Association of University Women in awarding to her the Alice Freeman Palmer Memorial Fellowship of $1,000 as an aid for further research work in history. This fellowship is only available to women holding the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Dr. Raymond was elected by the A. A. of U. W. because of the very unusual work which she did in obtaining her doctor's degree. The only obligation attached to this Fellowship is that Dr. Raymond continue her work in historical research on a plan which she has already outlined.
        Dr. Raymond, the daughter of the late Judge Henry Hart Neill and his wife, was born in El Paso, Texas, and when very young went with her parents to live in San Antonio, There, for nine years, she attended St. Mary's Episcopal School for girls and finished her preliminary training with two years at the High School. During her senior year she was editor-in-chief of the school magazine, The Huisache, and received a prize offered by the San Antonio Chapter of the Colonial Dames for a paper on "Early Education in the Colonies."
        Entering the University of Texas in 1907, she was initiated into Texas A of Pi Beta Phi. The following year she served on the editorial board of The Coyote.
        In her junior year, she married and left the university to live in Raymondville, Texas. There in 1911, was born her son, Neill Raymond.
        Returning to the university in 1915, Mrs. Raymond resumed her work and in two years received the degrees of B.A. and M.A. In 1918, she held the University Fellowship in History and was editorin-chief of the college magazine, The Longhorn.
        In the fall of the same year she entered Columbia University in New York City as Schiff Fellow in Political Science. Though there is no proviso against this fellowship being awarded to a woman, Mrs. Raymond is the only woman thus far to have held it. At Columbia she continued her research work under the very able direction of Professors William A. Dunning and Charles Downer Hazen, receiving the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 1921.
        Dr. Raymond's dissertation, British Policy and Opinion During the Franco-Prussian War, was selected by the editor of the Columbia Studies in History, Economics and Public Law, to be the first number of the one-hundredth volume of that series. With bibliography and index it comprises 435 pages and is published separately by Longmans, Green and Company of New York and by P. S. King and Son of London.
        The author has been gratified by favorable reviews in the London Times, Court Gazette, Edinburgh Scotsman, and New York Tribune. More highly prized than these, however, is a long letter from the late Viscount Bryce, who wrote shortly before his death to say that he was reading the monograph with much interest. Frederic Harrison and Sir Henry Lucy, two other eminent Englishmen, who were living during the time of which the dissertation treats, have also written of it very approvingly.
        In addition to her historical work, Mrs. Raymond has contributed books reviews to the Sunday magazine section of the New York Times and has had published several poems in Poet Lore of Boston. She makes her home with her mother and son in New York City and is an active member of the New York Alumnae Club of Pi Beta Phi.
