Firstly, I need to thank Dr. Susan Hartmann, Dr. Sally Kitch, Dr. Valerie Lee, Dr. Linda Mizejewski, Dr. Jill Bystydyzienski, Dr. Guisela Latorre, and Dr. Shannon Winnubst for granting me their time and knowledge. Their interviews informed much of this exhibit, so I am grateful not only for their time and enthusiasm, but also for their dedicated hard work in establishing the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
I want to extend my thanks to Jackson Stotlar and Rebekah Sims who guided me through my research inside the Department’s Office in University Hall. The filing cabinets were a treasure trove of knowledge, so without their aid in accessing the artifact, I would have been lost.
I would also like to thank OSU Libraries University Archives and Michele Drobik, the archivist who procured the countless boxes of documents I needed for this project.
I also need to thank Dr. Mytheli Sreenivas, my professor, who has guided me greatly during my undergraduate studies and recommended me for this research opportunity. I want to also extend my gratitude to Dr. Leigh Bonds, my research supervisor, who guided and encouraged me through this entire process.
