Lou Henry Hoover, Stanford Class of 1898, and the Rights of Women [VIRTUAL EVENT]
January 26 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
(Pacific Standard Time)
Speaker: Elena Danielson, Hoover Institution Archivist, Emerita
While very aware of the obstacles she faced as a woman, Lou Henry succeeded in four careers beyond that of “First Lady”: writer, geologist, architect, and philanthropist. She adroitly used her management skills to promote and expand the Girl Scouts, a non-controversial fit as “First Lady” but with a lasting national impact on the welfare of women.
This program is organized by the Stanford Historical Society and co-sponsored by the Stanford Women’s Club of San Francisco.
