Women's calendar planned for 2007

Will former U of S History professor and department head Hilda Neatby be in the University's 2007 centennial calendar?  She was honoured on a Canadian postage stamp, above, in 2000.

Will former U of S History professor and department head Hilda Neatby be in the University's 2007 centennial calendar? She was honoured on a Canadian postage stamp, above, in 2000.

The President’s Advisory Council on the Status of Women (PACSW) is looking for help with a special U of S centennial project it hopes will recognize women from all aspects of life on campus.

A 2007 desk calendar highlighting the work of 52 women over the history of the U of S is the council’s way of celebrating the University’s 100th anniversary, according to a member of the PACSW sub-committee organizing the project.

And Pat Harpell said the committee is looking for “the not-so-obvious women” for inclusion in the project.

“There are a lot of women who have done wonderful things at this University that have gone unacknowledged. We want to have something concrete, something people can see as a way of recognizing their contributions ... (and) we think maybe someone will suggest a woman we haven’t thought of yet.”

Harpell said the committee has requested funding from the College of Graduate Studies and Research to employ a grad student for four months to investigate potential candidates for the calendar, develop biographies and track down photos.

The final format of the calendar has not been decided. The committee is considering applying the proceeds from its sale to a bursary or scholarship.

Suggestions for a woman or group of women, including students, staff and alumni, whose accomplishments are worthy of celebration can be sent to Donna Bretell at dcb909@arts.usask.ca. The calendar will be available in the fall of 2006.
