TRACY PRINCE AND ZADIE SCHAFFER: Portland's Notable Women
Tracy J. Prince and her researcher Zadie Schaffer join us on Thursday, June 8th, at 7 pm to give a presentation based on Prince’s new book Notable Women of Portland, published by Arcadia Publishing.
Like much history, Portland’s history is typically told with a focus on male leaders. This book offers a reframing of Portland’s history by exploring women’s stories from pioneer times through the present, including special chapters on Women in the Arts and Women in Politics.
You will learn about Abigal Scott Duniway, Marie Equi, Beverly Cleary, Ursula K. Le Guin, Jean Auel, Barbara Roberts, Norma Paulus, Margaret Carter, Native Americans Polly Johnson and Josette Nouette, Lily White, Hazel Ying Lee, Mary Gysin Leonard, and many more. The book of full of images drawn from a variety of local public and private archives.
Prince, Scholar-in-Residence at Portland State University, is the author of Portland’s Goose Hollow and Culture Wars in British Literature and the co-author of Portland’s Slabtown. She received her PhD from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and is a frequent speaker on Native American art and history, Portland's history and historical ecology, and culture wars in British literature.
