Women who have made a special impact on their communities, professions and families are being honored with Remember the Ladies!, a campaign to raise $1 million to endow an archivist position for the Archives of Women of the Southwest at SMU’s DeGolyer Library. With a $5,000 gift, donors can honor special women in their lives, whose achievements will become part of the archives and whose names will be engraved on a plaque. The deadline is February 20 for names to be included on the plaque, to be unveiled at an event this spring; honorees after that point will be added at intervals. For information, contact Paulette Mulry at 214-768-1741 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The archives includes the story of Lucy Pier Stevens (right) from Ohio, who was marooned in Texas by the outbreak of the Civil War.
