HISTORY

In 1980-1982, the Center for Oral History and the Women's Studies Program at the University of Connecticut carried on an oral history project, funded by a grant from the Connecticut Humanities Council, on political women in Connecticut. Joyce Pendery and Carole Nichols conducted the twenty-one interviews; Betty Seaver was the transcriber. The project concentrated on women who had been active in political office and/or community service between 1920 and 1945.
