Thank you for your article on Laurie Wallmark ’76, “Picturing Innovative Women,” in the March 2022 issue. When I was growing up, from the time I could read, I read a lot! I searched out biographies of women. I read about Marie Curie, the first Queen Elizabeth, Mary, Queen of Scots, Florence Nightingale, Clara Barton, Prudence Crandall, who ran the first school for African-American girls in the United States — any woman I could find. In the early 1960s, books about eminent women weren’t as common as they are today. I would have been delighted to read Laurie Wallmark’s books if they had been available. I’m so glad they are now!
