Yale’s secret society, Skull & Bones—which was founded in 1832 but integrated in its first black member in 1965 and allowed its first women in the 1990s—is no longer largely an association dominated by white men.
According to a post on The Atlantic, a sister site of National Journal's, “The class of 2010 included more ethnic minorities than Caucasians; 2011's delegation included two gay students, plus one bisexual and one transgender. Last year, women and men were equally split, according to Yalies familiar with the members.”
Yale became a coed university in 1969.
