52 Women of Whatcom profiles women who were the backbone of their pioneer community—raising families, contributing to local culture, and leading in the establishment of schools, colleges, hospitals and museums. They fought for the vote and gradually became elected leaders themselves, working for the world beyond. As you read the stories of these women right up to the present time, you’ll understand why the League of Women Voters of Bellingham/Whatcom County included each one in this book to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote and the 100th birthday of the League.
