Welcome to Our New Intern!
June 10, 2009
|The Archives happily announces an addition to our staff: our new Archives Intern, Amy Estes. Amy is a senior in Art & Art History at UTSA. She will be curating a new online exhibit from UTSA Archives collections on the theme of San Antonio women’s “firsts,” scheduled to go live in the fall. The exhibit will feature such leading ladies as…|
- Hattie Elam Briscoe, first Black woman to graduate from St. Mary’s University School of Law
- Lila Cockrell, first woman mayor of San Antonio
- Laura Burleson Negley, first woman from Bexar County elected to the Texas Legislature
- Ginger Purdy, founder of the San Antonio Women’s Chamber of Commerce
- Fay Sinkin, a woman of so many firsts that we could do an entire exhibit on her alone!
Welcome to the Archives, Amy!
