This small Central New York town on the north shore of Cayuga Lake is the cradle of the women's rights movement. That's why the Women's Rights National Historic Park and the National Women's Hall of Fame are here. "Few are aware that the first women's rights convention in the world took place in Seneca Falls. It was held July 19 and 20, 1848," said Judy Hart, 47, the National Park Service's liaison with Congress.

Who among us remembers, or indeed ever knew, that Alice Hamilton was the pioneering doctor whose investigations led to laws protecting workers from harmful fumes and lead poisoning? Or can recount one accomplishment of Ida Wells-Barnett? Yet, when I said that I was going to visit the National Women's Hall of Fame, established in 1969, more than one cynic questioned the need for a women's hall of fame.

First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday she will visit American historic sites in need of repair and promote her effort to restore them. The first lady said her summer bus trips will promote the significance of the sites and the importance of protecting them. The trips are part of Clinton's plan to save treasures such as the flag that inspired "The Star Spangled Banner." Clinton is expected to make several short trips, beginning with a visit in mid-July to Seneca Falls, N.Y.

Hillary Rodham Clinton's three-day tour through the Northeast to generate enthusiasm and funds to restore nearly a dozen neglected historical sites is vintage first-lady fare. But the garden-club atmosphere that surrounded her and her fashionable broad-brimmed hat should not detract from the value of this effort.

I'm writing in response to a statement made by Connie Koenenn in her article "Heart of a Nation" (Nov. 1). Wilma Mankiller may well be the first woman elected to a top leadership position in one of today's patriarchal Indian nations, but to say she is the first woman to lead a major North American tribe is misleading. Before the introduction of Christianity and patriarchal government intervention, many tribes were matriarchal and matrilineal with women as chiefs and warriors. As the conquered tribes were forced into being "civilized" the status of these women along with their goddess deities fell.

--The letters were typical of those that schoolgirls wrote to their pen pals. But the time was 1940, and two of the schoolgirls were 11-year-old Anne Frank and her 14-year-old sister Margot. The two letters, a postcard and two photographs of the Jewish sisters are dated a month before the Nazis invaded the Netherlands and the Frank family was forced into hiding.
