Excerpt from Providence in Colonial Times

Soon after the doors Of Brown University were first Opened to women, Miss Kimball entered some Of its classes, more especially those in history, and at various times, indeed for five academic years in the period from 1894 to 1901, she was enrolled as one Of its special students, never seeking a degree, but al ways pursuing with eager intelligence and singular skill the subjects Of her choice. Her fitness to pursue graduate courses was so soon demonstrated that most of her academic work lay in them. All was done with fine precision but without pedantry, in the best spirit of the amateur who loves learning for its own sake yet appreciates that its choicest pleasures are not to be had through the methods Of the mere dilettante, but by adding to the amateur's breadth and sense of proportion the care and exactness of the professional scholar.
