November Windows in Time

Remarkable Women in Southern Oregon History with Anna Sloan

Women have long been making history in Southern Oregon. In this talk, Dr. Anna Sloan will highlight the stories of just a few of the extraordinary women who made their mark on our region over the past 150 years, including Fredericka Wetterer, Sybil Harber, Ann Haseltine Hill, Grace Fountain, Wong Soo Lue, and the women of the Hanley family.

Dr. Anna Sloan received her PhD in Anthropology from the University of Oregon in 2021. Her anthropological research has focused on intersections of gender, social identity, and heritage, interests that she now brings to her work as Curator of Collections at the Southern Oregon Historical Society and as an archaeologist at the Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology. 

The Windows in Time series is currently held on Online on the first Wednesday of the month. The program is one hour, from Noon – 1 p.m.

This program is being offered in person and via Zoom for a limited number of registered attendees. 

The monthly Windows in Time lunchtime lectures feature well-known writers and historians and bring alive the people, values, and events that shaped our southern Oregon heritage. Lectures are jointly sponsored by the Southern Oregon Historical Society (SOHS) and Jackson County Library Services.

You can find information about all Windows in Time events on the Jackson Country Library Services website.
