Hopkins Honors 50 Years Since an Historic Merger

Hopkins’ gender-inclusive campus may feel natural today, but half a century ago, the decision for two institutions to buck tradition and inch closer to inclusivity through a merger was seen by many as revolutionary.

In this four-part series, we look back at how the merger between Hopkins Grammar School (HGS)—then an all-boys school—and the all-girls school Day Prospect Hill (DPH) came to pass and hear from several of those who experienced this moment firsthand.
