From its founding in 1917 under the name Deep Springs, Collegiate and Preparatory, the college has been all-male, until its board voted in fall 2011 that the college would begin accepting female students in the summer of 2013. After resolving several legal challenges, the Deep Springs board of trustees voted once again in 2017 to admit women, starting with the class that will enter in the summer of 2018.List of Harvard University people
