Biography/History

Irene Bernice Wolt was born in Newark, New Jersey, on October 9, 1945. She graduated from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, in 1968 with a B.A. in Psychology after having studied abroad in Mexico, England, and France. She worked in printing collectives in the late 1960s and early 1970s in New York and Wisconsin and moved to Los Angeles, California, in 1971 with her then-husband Paul Becker, where she volunteered for the People's Action Union for Peace and Justice (PAUPJ) and was closely involved with political activism. From 1971-1972, she worked as the general manager of the Peace Press, an alternative progressive print shop in Los Angeles which created posters, flyers and leaflets for clients including the Black Panther Party, Chicano Moratorium, Earth Day Committee, The Pentagon Papers Defense Committee, the United Farm Workers and American Indian Movement, among others. During this time, she devoted herself to causes such as the Anti-Vietnam War movement, the Tucson Grand Jury case, as well as the Pentagon Papers Peace Project which educated the public about The Pentagon Papers trial and its surrounding issues.
In the 1980s, Wolt joined Fair Housing for Children, an activist organization in Santa Monica representing parents who faced rental discrimination because they had children; she served as an information coordinator and deputy director. She continued her involvement with community activism as a co-chair and steering committee member of the Ocean Park Community Organization (OPCO) from 1981-1983 and was a member of the city council appointed Santa Monica Cable Communications Task Force from 1984-1985. Her interest in environmental activism led her to co-found the Santa Monica non-profit environmental agency Heal the Bay in 1985. She also was the program coordinator for the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy from 1986-1990.
From 1992-1998, Wolt was an active member of the June Mazer Lesbian Archives, serving as a board member and editor of its newsletter, In the Life, and as board president from 1995-1996. She also worked as the Southern California Bureau Chief for the short-lived national women’s publication Lesbian World from 1993-1994. From 1998-2001, she was an independent research scholar with the UCLA Center for the Study of Women.
With Robert Gottlieb, Wolt co-authored the groundbreaking book titled Thinking Big: The Story of the Los Angeles Times, Its Publishers, and Their Influence on Southern California in 1977. Her written work was also featured in publications such as American Film, Los Angeles Magazine, and the Southern California Review of Journalism. In the last years of her life, she wrote, developed and designed websites and worked as an alternate media specialist from 2001-2009 in the Disabled Students Center at Santa Monica College. She died on July 21, 2009.
