The Researching Women & Gender at the Library of Congress webinar series engages attendees with quarterly presentations on researching women’s history and gender studies using Library of Congress collections and resources.
The January session features:
Music Division Archivist Janet McKinney has processed the papers of numerous remarkable women in the arts, most recently composers Hazel Scott (1920-1981) and Dana Suesse (1911-1987). Scott and Suesse each began their musical journey as a child piano prodigy and found somewhat parallel paths as successful composers and performers spanning popular, jazz, and classical genres in the 1930s-1950s. Join us for a conversation with Janet McKinney and rediscover the lives, careers, and music of these two trailblazing women – all documented in the Music Division’s Hazel Scott Papers and Dana Suesse Papers. The session will not be recorded.
