Nominations for Notable American Women: A Biographical Dictionary
Radcliffe College and the Harvard University Press announce the launching of preparations for the next volume of Notable American Women: A Biographical Dictionary. Volume V of Notable American Women will include essays on approximately 500-600 women who will have died between January 1, 1976, and January 1, 2000, with an expected publication date of 2004.
This volume will follow the criteria for selection used in Notable American Women: The Modern Period (1980): 1) the subject's influence on her times or field; 2) ability; 3) innovative or pioneering work; 4) relevance of her career for the history of women.
We are actively soliciting suggestions of possible subjects for our extensive database, especially nominations reflecting the contributions of underdocumented groups, regions, or specialties. If you wish to nominate a subject (or subjects), please supply a short synopsis of her career and its importance, as well as basic bibliographic sources, both secondary and archival (if known). We also welcome the names of scholars who are interested in writing specific articles or serving as consultants for specialized fields.
Please address all communication to Susan Ware at address below.
