Women in Long Island’s Past lecture Comments

Nationally notable women and local leaders have been part of Long Island’s history, though nearly invisible in most accounts.  Authors and artists, sunksquaws and suffragists, pioneering pilots and the Janes who made the planes, and innumerable other women have all left their mark on Long Island’s past. Even “ordinary” women have played important roles throughout our history. This talk at Hofstra will include Long Island’s first ladies, Kate Mason Hofstra, Alicia Patterson, and Cornelia Clinch Stewart among others. The speaker, Natalie Naylor is the author of Women in Long Island’s Past: A History of Eminent Ladies and Everyday Lives (2012). She is retired from Hofstra University where she taught American social history, including women’s history and Long Island history.

On Monday, May 13, 2013 Natalie Naylor, will speak about “Women in Long Island’s Past,” the subject of her recent book at 1 p.m. at Hofstra University, Hempstead; in Axinn Library room 246, sponsored by the Hofstra Association of Retired Professors.
