LONG BEACH — A booklet commemorating Long Beach women will be published in connection with the Long Beach centennial and Women's History Month in March. Jan Foster, chairwoman of the city's Women's History Month Committee and director of the Women's Center at Long Beach City College, is seeking stories and photos to include in the work.
"We've gone through information from the Long Beach Historical Society, old newspapers and magazines and the historical collections of California State University, Long Beach, as well as conducting personal interviews over the past year," Foster said. "We are looking for stories of unsung heroines of the early days of our city."
People with information to submit for publication can call Foster at 599-7986 or: Margaret Hearn, 439-4776; Marie LaFortune, 426-6255; Roney Gaston, 438-8796.
