MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2019
Monthly Luncheon, 11:30 a.m.
GRAND BALLROOM, LITTLE AMERICA HOTEL, CHEYENNE, WY
GUEST SPEAKER: MR. RICK EWIG

During World War I, Wyoming State government led an effort to document the state's experiences during the war-both in the state as well as the experiences of those who served overseas.

The leadership for this effort fell to Wyoming's newly appointed state historian, Eunice Anderson. She was the first person to serve as state historian. Anderson mobilized women around Wyoming to assist with this initiative.

Unfortunately, the state legislature never provided funding for such an effort; although, many other states provided funding for like attempts. Even without any funding, there were some successes, as documented in the Anderson Papers in the Wyoming State Archives. Through such efforts, it is recognized that oftentimes women led the endeavor to collect and preserve the history of Wyoming.
