The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) is seeking applications for the KHS research fellowship program for the fall 2017 cycle.
I am looking for a third paper on women's club activities which fit with the 2018 SAWH conference theme of resistance, power, and accommodation. The tentative title of the panel is “Women Themselves Cannot Win." Currently, I have two papers which focus on the 1940s -1950s. My paper is on the Federation’s activities, under Sarah Whitehurst’s leadership as national President of the Greater Federation of Women’s Clubs, in shaping national preparedness during the defensive period prior to World War II (1939 to 1941), and the second paper focuses on the post-war period.
