Finding Women’s History in Unexpected Places

By November 9, 2017 No Comments

Every summer the NPS and similar organizations hire interns who get firsthand experience in what they do and how they operate. Last year, Mary Feitz worked in Omaha for the NPS Midwest Region National Historic Landmark Program where she prepared this article, “Finding Women in Unexpected Places,” for their Fall 2014 newsletter under the supervision of Dr. Michele Curran. Ms. Feitz is in her final year for her M.A. in the Design Program, Historic Preservation, University of Pennsylvania.  The National Historic Landmark program originating in 1935 identifies and supports 2700 nationally significant properties that have  been carefully nominated and designated.
