(1) My advanced scientific research project at the MIT, HTC Program is the first study on "education and career history of Turkish and Turkish-American women architects in the US", and is also the first scholarly research on the early time period of co-education and early women architects from the Princeton University, School of Architecture (Class of 1970 and 1971). When I uncovered career herstories of pioneering women architects from modern Turkey to the US (with academic sponsorship by MIT), there was no ongoing and/or published scholarly, and in-depth research on my research subject. With academic sponsorship by MIT, when I uncovered early time period of co-education at the Princeton University-School of Architecture, I met Professor Robert Geddes (the first dean of the Princeton University-School of Architecture) and Beverly Willis (the founder of Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation); they clearly told me that they did not know research on this subject. When I contacted Professor Mary McLeod, all architecture historians at the Princeton University-School of Architecture, Monica Ponce de Leon, the woman dean of the Princeton University-School of Architecture, and President of Princeton University by e-mail and asked for their scholarly, architectural views or comments / contributions to my advanced academic research on the early women architects from that school, none of them shared scholarly or architectural research, publication on my research subject. I could not reach a study on my subject at the library of the Princeton University-School of Architecture (2014-2016). I contacted the first three women architects graduated from the Princeton University-School of Architecture, (Class of 1970 and 1971), they clearly wrote that there is no research on their career herstories. Academic sponsor of my advanced academic research project is the MIT, HTC Program and "its all rights reserved".
