520    " Like pearls threaded one-by-one to form a necklace, five
       women successively nurtured students on the Purdue 
       University campus in America's heartland during the 1930s 
       to 1990s. Individually, each became a legendary dean of 
       women or dean of students. Collectively, they wove a 
       sisterhood of mutual support in their common--sometimes 
       thwarted--pursuit of shared human rights and equality for 
       all. Dorothy C. Stratton, Helen B. Schleman, M. Beverley 
       Stone, Barbara I. Cook, and Betty M. Nelson opened new 
       avenues for women and became conduits for change, 
       fostering opportunities for all people. They were loved by
       students and revered by colleagues. The women also were 
       respected throughout the United States as founding leaders
       of the Coast Guard Women's Reserve (SPARS), frontrunners 
       in the National Association of Women Deans and Counselors,
       and as pivotal members of presidential committees in the 
       Kennedy and Nixon administrations. While it is focused on 
       changing attitudes on one college campus, The Deans' Bible
       sheds light on cultural change in America as a whole, 
       exploring how each of the deans participated nationally in
       the quest for equality. The story rolls through the 
       "picture-perfect," suppressive 1950s, the awakening 1960s,
       women's liberation, Title IX, 1980s AIDS and alcohol 
       epidemics, the changing mores for the disabled, and ends 
       in the twenty-first century. As each woman succeeded the 
       other, forming a five-dean friendship, they knitted their 
       bond with a secret symbol--a Bible. Originally possessed 
       by Purdue's first part-time Dean of Women Carolyn 
       Shoemaker, the Bible was handed down from dean to dean 
       with favorite passages marked. The lowercased word "bible"
       is often used in connection with reference works or 
       "guidebooks." The Deans' Bible serves as a guidebook, 
       brimming with stories of courageous women who led by 
       example and lived their convictions"--|cProvided by
