Pioneering Women in the State Capitol

April 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Monday, April 15, 2024
Vergennes Township Hall 69 Lincoln Lake Avenue

Pioneering women under the dome.
Program offered jointly with the Friends of the Englehardt Library.

Learn about the trailblazing women and the rules—written and unspoken—that both limited and inspired women’s successes working in the Michigan capitol from 1879 to 1940 with Capitol Historian & Curator Valerie Marvin.

Prominent women featured in this presentation include State Librarians Harriet Tenney and Mary Spencer, Senator Eva McCall Hamilton, clerk-turned-author Belle Maniates, Museum Curator Marie Ferry, and Representatives Cora Reynolds Anderson, Dora Stockman, and Charline White.

Valerie Marvin is honored to serve as the Historian and Curator of the Michigan State Capitol. A graduate of the University of Michigan (Bachelor of Arts in Russian Studies, 2005) and Eastern Michigan University (Masters of Science in Historic Preservation, 2009), Valerie lives with her husband David in a 1906 home in downtown Lansing.
