MDAH gathers information on notable women's sites

The Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH) is participating in a nationwide search for historical sites associated with notable women. The information from each state will be compiled and used in the establishment of the Museum of Women's History in New York City as well as on that organization's Web site. All sites submitted must be open to the public. Gravesites are eligible, but if a cemetery contains the graves of several prominent women it should be listed as a single entry with brief information about each woman included. All submissions must be made by August 15, 2004.

MDAH would also like information on significant sites that are not open to the public, such as homes of notable women. This list will be posted on the MDAH Web site, along with the site information gathered for the national museum.

Anyone with questions or wishing to recommend a site should contact Chrissy Wilson of MDAH at (601) 576-6857. Submission forms can be found here.
