Women's Legal History Biography Project
"Our primary purpose in building the website is to extend the historiography of women as lawyers in the United States. To date, there are few texts on the aspirations and accomplishments of pioneer women lawyers, and even less on how the profession has changed as a result of their entry...The website grows out of Professor Barbara Babcock's course at Stanford Law School on Women's legal history. The librarians of the Robert Crown Library conceived and maintain the site: Andrew Gurthet, Paul Lomio and Erika Wayne, with special credit to Rita Lomio (Summer 1998) and H. Katharine Lo (Summer 2001)."
