Elisabeth Woodbridge Morris Hogan, daughter of Charles L. and Alice Oviatt Morris, was born September 11, 1985, in New Haven, Connecticut. A 1953 graduate of Vassar College, Hogan was the first director of Massachusetts NOW and served as co-chair of NOW's ERA lobby for passage of the ERA in Massachusetts. She was a consultant to the Governor's Commission on the Status of Women, a member of the Women's Equity Action League (WEAL) and American Women in Radio and Television. From 1971-1982, Hogan was editor and publisher of The Equal Employment News (originally called WomanPower). She wrote, produced, and broadcast the daily news feature "Women at Work" for WEEI-CBS in Boston (1972-1974) and a series called "History of Women" for the CBS Radio Network (1974). Hogan also served as president of Betsy Hogan Associates, where she conducted equal employment opportunity seminars for public and private sector organizations. Hogan died August 15, 1985 in Brookline, Massachusetts.
