"And yet she persisted: Juliette Kinzie and the Role of Women on the Wisconsin Frontier will be held at The Egg & I Restaurant (Private Room), 2501 West Beltline Hwy, Madison.
How have brave and persistent women of our State’s early days made an impact on what we know about our State’s history and the forces that shaped it? Juliette Kinzie was the local Indian Agent’s wife who came from a wealthy family out east and chronicled her 1830s adventures in the bestseller, “Wau Bun.” But she was a woman who transcended 19th century expectations, creating alliances, institutions and ultimately mentoring her granddaughter and namesake who became the founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA.
TEMPO member Kathe Crowley Conn loves Midwestern history and authored the “Juliette Kinzie” Badger Biography for the Wisconsin Historical Society. She will share stories and anecdotes about Kinzie’s life and the critical role of women on the Midwestern frontier.
This event is generously sponsored by TEMPO member Loretta Himmelsbach. TEMPO will provide a continental breakfast with menu items available at the member’s expense.
Please register by March 27. And Yet She Persisted - Discussion with Juliette Kinzie
