Lou Henry Hoover, Stanford Class of 1898, and the Rights of Women [VIRTUAL EVENT]

January 26 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Location: Virtual

(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.

Elena Danielson’s recent book, Hoover Tower at Stanford University, includes a lot of information about Lou Henry Hoover. It is available for purchase on Amazon.

This program is organized by the Stanford Historical Society and co-sponsored by the Stanford Women’s Club of San Francisco.
