As part of my efforts promoting women in science, I lead a movement to honor geological
pioneer FLORENCE WEBER, who along with Florence Collins, few a biplane to Alaska in 1947 and together became the first female
field geologists in Alaska. Our efforts resulted in Florence Weber receiving an honorary degree from the University of
Alaska - Fairbanks in 1986, the university's highest honor.
Spearheaded a movement to nominate
adoption pioneer BERTHA HOLT for a Nobel Peace Prize. The effort resulted in successfully advancing Bertha Holt as a Nobel
Peace Prize candidate in 1990 (although the prize that year was ultimately awarded to Mikhail Gorbachev).
