Jacqueline St. John Papers

Identifier: UNO-0076
The collection comprises the professional files of Jacqueline St. John from her years of service as a faculty member in the Department of History at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, from 1968 until 1996. The collection includes correspondence, notes, reports, History Department meeting minutes, booklets, flyers, news clippings, and other papers. The material in this collection has not been arranged and described.

New material added April 19, 2018: Although there are quite a variety of materials in this collection, everything appears to relate to women's studies or feminism, in general. For example, items include those of a more serious nature, such as Ms. Magazines, National Organization for Women newsletters, and feminist bibliographies, but also the more whimsical, such as Famous Women card decks, Wonder Women and Rosie the Riveter tee shirts, and paper doll booklets.
