International Women’s Forum Oral History Collection, (S1148)

Finding Aid

The International Women's Forum-St. Louis Oral History Collection (IWF) is a project conducted by the State Historical Society of Missouri-St. Louis. The forum, founded by Elinor "Elly" Guggenheimer in 1974 began with the intention of bringing women in leadership together to share their experiences and today has grown into building, "better global leadership across careers, continent and cultures by connecting the world's most pre-eminent women of significant and diverse achievement." The collection began in 2013 by video recording members of the St. Louis forum and was brought to the Historical Society by fellow member Dr. Blanche M. Touhill (Chancellor Emeritus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis) and seeks to document who these women are and how they established themselves as successful, enterprising leaders in the city of St. Louis and St. Louis County.

The oral history project is ongoing and additional transcripts will be added when they become available.
