Hobart and William Smith Colleges
Hobart and William Smith Colleges are Geneva, New York, liberal arts colleges in a coordinate system. Hobart College was founded in 1822 as Geneva College and renamed in honor of its founder, Episcopal bishop John Henry Hobart, in 1852. William Smith College was founded in 1908 by Geneva nurseryman and philanthropist William Smith as a women's college sharing certain facilities and faculty with Hobart College but self-identifying not as a single college but as two coordinate colleges.
- Elizabeth Blackwell, first woman awarded the degree of M.D. in the United States, graduated from the medical school of Geneva College in 1849.
