New Archive of Women’s History Established at the University of Utah

The Clyde 20th Century Women’s Legacy Archive has been established at the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah. The archive was the result of the work of Aileen H. Clyde, who has been a community leader in Utah for the past 60 years.

The archive set out to preserve the history of women in Utah whose lives and work helped create social and cultural change. The collection includes oral histories, journals, photographs, manuscripts, and other documents relating to women from many walks of life.

Included in the archive are the papers of Karen Shepherd who represented Utah in the U.S. Congress. Shepherd said, “The 20th Century Women’s Legacy Archive contains the stories of the lives of women who made a difference. Their work, as preserved in their papers and writings, shaped the history of Utah and played a vital role in the community that emerged and is now shaping the history of the 21st century.”
