Hiring of Kären Mason
Kären Mason was hired as the first curator for the Iowa Women’s Archives.
Opening of the Iowa Women’s Archives October 28
To launch the Iowa Women’s Archives, the University Libraries held a symposium in the Old Capitol Senate Chamber on Iowa women in political life. Panelists included women who had been active in politics at the local, state, national, and international levels. Afterwards, a ceremony and reception in the Main Library celebrated the new archives. The Archives opened for research the following day.
