This is an original 1889 halftone print with images of educational institutes at which Mrs. Frances Willard taught including the School House Harlem, Genesee Wesleyan Seminary, the New School Harlem, and the Pittsburgh Female College.

The Genesee Wesleyan Seminary was founded in 1831 by the Genessee Annual Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was located in Lima, New York. In 1849, the Genesee Wesleyan Seminary was called the Genesee College, and was removed to Syracuse in 1870 and became the Syracuse University. The building at Lima remained open as the second Genesee Wesleyan Seminary until 1941. Genesee Junior College opened in 1947 and closed in 1951. The Elim Bible Institute operated the same year, and is still in operation today. The Genesse Wesleyan Seminary and the Genesee College Hall were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Both historic buildings are still located on the campus of Elim Bible Institute, a Bible college offering higher education in biblical studies.

The Pittsburgh Female College also known as the Pennsylvania Female College was founded in 1869. This college was renamed Pennsylvania College for Women in 1890, and as Chatham College in 1955 in honor of William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham. In 2007, the Chatham College changed its name to what is known today as the Chatham University, an American university with a women's undergraduate college and coeducational graduate programs.

Frances Elizabeth Caroline Willard was an influential women's suffragist and American Educator. Mrs. Willard was born in Churchville, near Rochester in New York, and spent most of her childhood in the city of Janesville, Wisconsin. At the age of 18, she moved to Evanston, Illinois. In 1879, Willard was the president of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union also known as WCTU. She also fought for women's suffrage throughout Illinois.
