A reminder that tonight, in the History Pub series presented by Holy Names Heritage Center, Oregon Historical Society, and McMenamins, Dr. Kimberly Jensen will be speaking on "Women and the First World War" at 7:00 pm. More details from our earlier post. Admission is free, but donations of canned food for the Oregon Food Bank are strongly encouraged.
Jensen is the author of Mobilizing Minerva: American Women in the First World War and the winner of the Joel Palmer Prize from the Oregon Historical Quarterly for her fall 2007 article "'Neither Head Nor Tail to the Campaign': Esther Pohl Lovejoy and the Oregon Woman Suffrage Victory of 1912." She is currently working on a biography of University of Oregon Medical School Class of 1894 alumna Esther Pohl Lovejoy, about which we are fantastically excited!
