Wellesley College kept alumna Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis about a progressive Chicago organizer under lock and key while she served as first lady, a report says, but today it is open for public view.
MSNBC.com’s Bill Dedman reports that Wellesley historically has allowed every senior thesis to be read, but they made an exception for Clinton. Dedman reports that Clinton asked that the thesis not be made public, and Wellesley decided that the theses of any alumna who becomes president or first lady would be kept from public view.
Since Clinton is no longer in the White House, the thesis is now accessible to the public. Because of the secrecy surrounding it, some conservatives have called it the “holy grail,” but Dedman seemed less than impressed when he read it.
