Women’s History Month Events

Written by Sarah Calise, graduate assistant

The Albert Gore Research Center will be participating in Middle Tennessee State University’s celebration of Women’s History Month. There are four specific events or programs to look out for during March.

  1. Exhibits — Visit our research room to experience the exhibit on Marion Skeen Coleman Peck, a journalist during World War II and one of the first American civilians to witness the atrocities of the Holocaust. We also have many women veterans featured in our Veterans History oral history exhibit. You can even listen to some of the oral histories in our research room–just ask!
  2. Guest Bloggers — Faculty, staff, and students from MTSU will serve as guest bloggers covering various topics of interest. The blogs will focus on women’s collections housed in our archive.
  3. Exhibit Hall — On Wednesday, March 23 from 9am-4pm, our research room will become an exhibit hall showcasing some of our most fascinating primary sources related to collections featuring outstanding women. Stop by and learn about the collections from our docents, and engage them in lively discussion about women and archives.
  4. Adeline King Podcasts — We are launching a new podcast program for the Adeline King Papers. King graduated with her Bachelor of Arts in June 1927 from the Tennessee College for Women and did graduate study at the University of California, Berkeley and George Peabody College, Nashville. She become a well-published author of articles for various news outlets. She also wrote morale-boosting letters to servicemen in World War II. The podcasts will feature dramatic readings of these letters.

Please enjoy these events and others by searching the calendar produced by MTSU’s National Women’s History Month Committee.
