The ladies of the lighthouses

The stories of the women who served the sailing community during the lighthouse-keeping era— standing in defiance of gender norms of the time— will be the focus of a lecture hosted by the National Museum of the Great lakes on Wednesday, February 24 at 7pm. Patricia Majher, former editor of Michigan History magazine and author of the book Ladies of the Lights: Michigan Women in the U.S. Lighthouse Service will present a discussion about the book and its subjects in this online event. Registration is free, copies of the book can be purchased while reserving space. Sign up to virtually attend the lecture here.
