She was the FIRST WOMAN to graduate from Columbia University.

In  1883  Columbia President Frederick A. P. Barnard, an early champion of higher education for women,  issued a call for New York area women interested in a higher education.

Emily Cape was the single applicant.

Ms. Palmer later became  very involved in the establishment of the Society of Independent Artists in 1884 as a group of artists requiring no jury-no prizes and equal standing for all.  Their first exhibition was in New York, 1917, and included, among others,  Rockwell KentWalter ArensbergMarcel Duchamp, Man Ray, and Emily Palmer Cape with 2 pieces, ” The Pool “  &  “A Glorious Day “.


The above piece of her work is in the original frame and is titled,    “Bermuda” ,    and  dated 1940.
