Found in 11 Collections and/or Records:
Teacher. Photographs, correspondence, and printed materials describing one year (1917-18) spent teaching the children of homesteaders at the Elkhead School in Routt County, Colorado.
The collection contains personal and professional papers reflecting Elizabeth Kennedy's role as one of the pioneers in the field of Women's Studies and LGBTQ Studies as well as her activism, both in Buffalo, NY and in Arizona. Especially well documented is the emergence of Women's Studies as a viable academic field, as well as the opening up of American Studies and cultural anthropology.
Librarian; Assistant editor. The papers include Simon's unpublished manuscript, "Following Fannie in a Changing World," which focuses on the around-the-world trip she made with her college classmate, Margaret Hodges, in 1928-1929. There is also a small amount of correspondence related to the manuscript, a few photographs, newspaper clippings, and biographical material including a detailed resume.
Marianne Robinson's letters, photographs, poetry, correspondence, and even invoices are fantastic primary sources for topics of the labor and women's movement, folk music, single motherhood, and activism. Her correspondence with Woody Guthrie might be of special interest.
Fashion designer. The collection consists of four scrapbooks and her self-published memoir, Mary Telling. The scrapbooks include photographs of Strudwick's family, travel, design work, fabric samples, and text.
The collection contains papers related to Patricia Bernstein's 1993 book, "Having a Baby: Mothers Tell Their Stories," including multiple manuscript drafts, research materials, release forms, and photographs.
YWCA overseas secretary and official. This very small collection consists of Van Meter's notes about her travels and experiences working to establish YWCA chapters around the world and includes material relating to YWCA centers in Turkey and in South America.
