The Only Known Surviving Copy of the First Woman's Doctoral Thesis in Germany, "Algebraic group-theoretical studies on sparse trigonometry" (1895)
First Female Ph.D. in Germany. Gottingen, Germany: 1895. Grace Chisolm's German language doctoral dissertation "Algebraic group-theoretical studies on sparse trigonometry" at the University of Gottingen made her the first woman to earn a Ph.D. in any field from a German university, and it led her to a fruitful research career that culminated in the Gamble Prize in Mathematics. It is the only known surviving copy. Due to restrictions on women's higher education in England, Englishwoman Grace Chisolm took her research abroad, attending the most rigorous mathematical program in Europe and becoming the first woman to earn a Ph.D. in any field from a German university. Chisolm's 1895 German dissertation "Algebraic group-theoretical studies on sparse trigonometry" is 73 pages and has detailed mathematical figures. Soft covers. Green by spine. No outer cover page. OCLC Worldcat reports no other known copies of her thesis at any institution, making it the only known copy. Chisolm went on to win the Gamble Prize in mathematics.
