JOURNALIST ALICE KAHLER Marshall has donated her private archives on women’s history?the result of more than three decades of work?to Pennsylvania State University.
The collection, valued at nearly $300,000, will be housed in the library of Penn State in Harrisburg, the school said.
The collection provides insight into women immigrants; women in the early labor, anti-slavery, suffrage and temperance movements; and women in education, law, medicine, politics, religion, sports and war, according to Penn State.
Marshall is a former Washington Post employee who also worked as public relations director for the Pennsylvania Department of State, executive assis-tant to the secretary of state and deputy press secretary for the Pennsylvania Department of Commerce.
