“In anticipation of the League’s 100th anniversary, the League is thrilled to partner with the University of Florida to maintain our important historical papers in perpetuity,” said Jessica Lowe-Minor, executive director for the League of Women Voters of Florida. “These archives represent the incredible work that has been done by our forebears and form an essential part of Florida’s unique history.”
“The League of Women Voters of Alachua County/Gainesville is particularly excited that these documents will be maintained locally at the University of Florida, where writers and scholars can access them,” said LWV Alachua County/Gainesville president Kathy Kidder. “This event provides an excellent opportunity for those interested in Florida history, women’s studies and political science to help ensure that these documents are maintained for future use.”
Tickets are available at the door for $40 per person or $75 per couple. Parking will be available.
