You probably recognize some of the men in this photo, but can you identify the woman in the front row? Do you know her name or anything about her? Would you like to?

In celebration of Women’s History Month The University of Chicago Library invites you to a study break to learn more about the women who helped build and grow the University.

The event will take place on March 4th in Regenstein Library room 122.  The highlight of the afternoon will be a talk at 3 p.m. given by Daniel Meyer, University Archivist and Director of the Special Collections Research Center, on the women who greatly contributed to the establishment of the University of Chicago. Immediately following the talk everyone is welcome to visit the Special Collections Research Center to view selected original  documents and photographs highlighting women from the University Archives.
