She is the first woman to be inducted.

The citation shown in this album entry contains some errors. Jane was born November 18, 1855 (not 1876). She entered S.U. in 1871. S.U. was founded in 1870. She graduated from S.U. in 1876 with a B.A. As noted she was one of the 10 founding members of Alpha Phi "Fraternity" at S.U., called that since there were no sororities prior to this. This was the first at any university. See her citation at http://www.alphaphi.org/aboutus/history/founders.
