Branch President Mary L. Gardner publishes article in The Pen Woman
CNY Branch President Mary L. Gardner has an article published in the Fall 2017 issue of The Pen Woman magazine. Gardner's article chronicles the Central New York Branch connection to an historic photo hanging in the Pen Arts Building in Washington, D.C. The photo dates April 18, 1928 and offers a group portrait featuring President Calvin Coolidge standing with a few hundred NLAPW members who had come to visit the nation's Capital. The only child in the photo was the daughter of a CNY Branch member in attendance at that time.
Gardner's researched article provides the background and historical context of the photo and the 4-year-old Dorothy Wakker in the 1928 photograph.
