Spring 2011 Archives Speaker Series Event Today (April 7)

The Canisius College Archives & Special Collections presents an Archives Speaker Series event entitled “From Blue Tent to Dignity Circle: The Legacy Finds an Archival Home” with Constance B. Eve, founder and chair of Women for Human Rights and Dignity, Inc. (WHRD) on Thursday (April 7) at 2:30 p.m. on the 2nd floor of the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library.

This event is in conjunction with the donation of a major archival collection to Canisius College — The Collection of the Women for Human Rights and Dignity, Inc.  When it is made available for research, this gift will provide a rich archival resource for students, faculty and researchers across multiple disciplines including women and gender studies, psychology, psychology, criminal justice, sociology, religion, local history, health and human services, including counseling, and education.  Many of the organizational and outreach services related to this collection have quietly happened in the Canisius neighborhood, including several Canisius service learning opportunities.

Eve established WHRD in 1980 as a reaction to events surrounding the 1977 case of Buffalo’s Gail Trait, who was arrested and convicted of brutally murdering her three young children.  The case attracted national attention as one of the earliest social and political controversies surrounding issues addressed in filicide cases.  WHRD’s mission to “empower women, children and families to move on to economic, social and emotional growth”  and has been a guiding force to educate women about their options for a new start in life after incarceration in hope they will avoid the cycle of re-incarceration, as well as be better able to care for their children into the future.

A reception with light refreshments will follow the presentation.  For more information, contact Kathleen DeLaney, archivist, at Ext. 8421.
