Professional Women

in 1890's Grand Rapids

Sunday, March 20, 11:20 am  NOTE TIME CHANGE!

Presenter: Jo Ellyn Clarey, Greater Grand Rapids Women's History Council 

Grand Rapids had a surprising number of women physicians in the 1890s-over ten! Besides female teachers and physicians, we also had journalists and an attorney whose story is beginning to complicate the emerging portrait of our nation's earliest women lawyers. Join the Fountain Street Church history series on Sunday, March 20th, to hear more about Grand Rapids' earliest professional women.     

Sunday, March 20th
11:20 am - 1:30 pm
Free and Open to the Public
Lunch can be ordered onsite
