SALT LAKE CITY — The University of Utah will honor the achievements of women with the opening of the Clyde 20th Century Women's Legacy Archive.
The archive at the J. Willard Marriott Library at the U., is headed by community leader Aileen H. Clyde. Clyde's advisory board of eight has set out to document and preserve the history of women in Utah and elsewhere whose lives and work helped create social and cultural change.
The archive contains oral histories, journals, photographs and manuscripts of noteworthy women from all walks of life.
"The 20th Century Women's Legacy Archive contains the stories of the lives of women who made a difference," said former Utah Congresswoman Karen Shepherd. "Their work, as preserved in their papers and writings, shaped the history of Utah and played a vital role in the community that emerged and is now shaping the history of the 21st century."
The archive's board and the library will celebrate the inauguration of the archives at the library on March 6 at 7 p.m. with a program, exhibition and reception. The event is free and open to the public. Contact Judy Jarrow in Special Collections with any questions at 801-581-3421 or email@example.com.
