Highlights with Heidi: Mystery Cards

Heidi Stringham Research

While searching for a document for a patron, Reference Archivist Heidi Stringham found these colorful cards! They were created by the Governor’s Commission for Women and Families, whose purpose is to protect the rights of women and families in Utah. Since its inception as the Governor’s Advisory Committee on Women’s Programs (1968-1970), the organization has also been known as the Governor’s Committee on the Status of Women (1970-1973), and the Governor’s Commission on the Status of Women (1973-1990). The legislature approved the current name in 1990. There was no date or context information so we are not exactly sure what these were used for. Do you have a guess?
