Feminist Farm Wife, A Memoir
Currently I’m researching archival material for a memoir that features writing by my mother Ann Wilson, who as a feminist was an atypical Midwest farm wife. She ran for State Representative, cofounded 2 quilt guilds, and travelled internationally. She stood out for her focus on activism and the arts, and she wrote about much of it as news editor for the local weekly newspaper. I’ve acquired the digitized archive of the newspaper and will be scouring it for relevant writings. This project calls on me to edit existing material and to provide additional context for her life and writing.
