Celebrating the Women of the Mercantile: Authors, Researchers, Activists, & Beyond


As St. Louis’ oldest cultural institution, the Mercantile Library has hosted remarkable women researchers, authors, artists, and activists throughout its history. The library’s diverse collections preserve stories that celebrate the authentic lives and experiences of these women. In this presentation Pott Waterways Curator, Sara Hodge, explores the legacy of women at the Mercantile, how their gender identity influenced their story telling, and how their contributions and achievements re-contextualize our shared past, present, and future.
