Description
Vivian Hall, a resident of Irvine, California from 1968 until her death in 2008, was an educator, feminist, political and community activist, and grass roots organizer. The collection principally documents Hall's political and feminist activities during the 1970s, notably her years as First Vice Chair of the National Women's Political Caucus, appointment as a delegate to the National Conference for International Women's Year, and 1976 Congressional campaign. Hall also developed two of the first women's studies courses in the country for high school students, helped found two Orange County feminist groups, Women For: Orange County, and Women's Network Alert, and was a leading member in a coalition of Orange County women that brought about investigations into Senator William Campbell's sponsorship of an annual Conference on Women.
