This encyclopedia was made possible by the willingness of many scholars to write, revise, edit, and ponder the meaning of women in the American West and to give so much of themselves to see this project into print. The professionals at Sage Reference made this volume possible with guidance, enthusiasm, and a critical eye. In particular, we thank Rolfe A. Janke, Jerry Westby, Claudia Hoffman, and Leticia Gutierrez for their support, professionalism, and prompt responses to so many questions over the past three years. Barbara Coster, our copy editor, brought consistency with good questions and professional touches to this volume.
We also thank all the librarians who have made much of this research possible. Bill Stein, the archivist at the Nesbitt Memorial Library in Columbus, Texas, made seemingly difficult research possible for a California researcher. Our author/ librarians Debra Gold Hansen at San Jose State, Danelle Moon at Yale, Judy Ruttenberg of the University of California, Irvine, and Jayne Sinegal at Irvine Valley College helped us in many ways and assisted many of our authors. We also thank the professional staff at the Huntington Library, San Marino, California, and the Pollock Library at California State University, Fullerton, for their assistance. We know that no meaningful research can be done without the assistance of professional librarians and we are deeply in their debt.
We remember the sacrifice of our authors in meeting deadlines and committing so much time to entries. Our colleague Clark Davis died at age 36 shortly after completing his entry. His loss is felt by so many and the loss to history and its students is incalculable. Some of our intended authors were prevented by severe illness from completing their promised work. We acknowledge the help of Willis E. McNelly, a World War II veteran and Professor Emeritus of English, California State University, Fullerton, who passed on April 6, 2003, unable to complete his entry. We also acknowledge the professionalism of so many who work outside of academia yet gave so much to their work. Taking time from 50- and 60-hour weeks to work in archival materials, oral histories, and secondary sources speaks loudly to us all. Yet we all heed the same call to bring life to the women who built the American West. It is our hope that this volume advances the cause.[Page viii]

Reader's Guide[Page xiii]
To give the reader a quick sense of the topics contained in this work, we have arranged most of the entries in the following topical guide. Broad topical entries such as Kansas and Oklahoma (the study of the women of a state), Women of the Southwest (a regional perspective on women), and Cripple Creek (the women of a city) are included in this encyclopedia to give you an idea of how to structure a work on women in a place. Because of the scope considered by the authors transcending topics, you should consult them for their contents and concepts. The nine topical categories are Agriculture/Ranching, Arts and Letters, Education, Entrepreneurs, Law, Pioneers, Public Performance, Religion, and Women's Organizations. We hope you find this useful, but remind you to use the Index as a finding means.

In 1983 the first Western Women's Conference convened in Sun Valley, Idaho, to address the omissions and absence of women in traditional western history. This conference marked the first national meeting devoted to western women's history and launched the publication of The Women's West, edited by Susan Armitage and Elizabeth Jameson (1987). These pioneering scholars provided a springboard for future histories focused on western women and laid the foundation for future studies navigating the spectrum and diversity of women's experiences in the West. As noted by Armitage and Jameson, the influence of Frederick Jackson Turner's “frontier thesis” in 1893 portrayed western history as “one-dimensional and historically inaccurate and incomplete” (3–6). The histories of American Indians, Hispanics, Asians, individual families, and all ethnic and social classes of women were left out of Turner's rough-and-tumble “wild West.”
The success of western women's history as a separate yet integral part of western history and U.S. history is a testament to the scholarship of these early pioneers. The articles in this encyclopedia contribute to the growing body of literature documenting the diverse lives of women in the West and the nation. Some of the topics explored include the clubwomen's movement, politics, prostitution, women homesteaders, suffrage, mining, agriculture, rodeo women, literary women, conservation, emigrant experiences, librarians, and research strategies locating primary and secondary resources.
Through these articles, the Encyclopedia of Women in the American West brings together an array of experiences, and like its predecessor publications, hopes to advance continued scholarship in western women's history, to develop new methodologies for analysis, and to locate new materials that will allow for inclusiveness and a broader, more accurate understanding of women's contributions to western and American history.[Page xvi]Yale University

We are pleased to offer this Encyclopedia of Women in the American West as part of the Sage family of reference books. We intend this volume to be used by the reading public in conjunction with other Sage publications, particularly Angela M. Howard & Frances M. Kavenik's Handbook of American Women's History (second edition) published in 2000. Because our focus is regional and follows this Sage reference work of greater breadth, we strongly advise our readers to consult both works in terms of fully informing research and knowledge in the growing field of women's studies.
For us the West is west of the 100th meridian. This is where explorers, pioneers, and present-day environmentalists confronted the fact of aridity. We know this is a contested definition, and in our book Where is the West? (2001) we set out the scholarly debate regarding the changing definition of what constitutes the West.
Your editors have traveled a long scholarly path to this point. Professor Bakken benefited from the insights of William L. O'Neill in the 1960s as he pioneered women's history at the University of Wisconsin and from the scholarship of and friendships with Anne Butler, Betsy Jameson, Sandra Mathews-Lamb, Glenda Riley, Janet Schmeizer, Sherry L. Smith, Sandra VanBurkleo, and Kelly A. Woestman in the three decades that followed. Professor Farrington studied women's history as part of American legal history in the 1980s and benefited from the counsel of Glenna Matthews and Glenda Riley, who expanded her scholarly reach and inquiry. She has taught women's history at a variety of institutions and continues her scholarly inquiry as part of that instructional enterprise. In 2000 we produced a six-volume work titled The American West, with one of the volumes titled The Gendered West. Encyclopedia of Women in the American West continues our mutual quest to capture the lives of women in the West and to contextualize their experiences and contributions to American society.
We recognize that our selections for this encyclopedia are limited amid a rapidly growing field of women's history, women's studies, and feminist studies. Even within the West, a field with explosive scholarly tendencies since the 1980s, we have attempted both a selective and a suggestive set of entries. Some of the entries are topical, others biographical. Some entries survey the existing literature and provide a research bibliography. Debra Hansen of the San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science provides such an entry on women's clubs in the American West. Some of the entries pull together existing historiography and put forward research findings. Danelle Moon's work in librarianship in California is suggestive of the potentialities of such research. Our authors have produced some material not in print in any venue. Others have reworked fields of long-term scholarly interest. We trust that the combination will be useful to all readers, and encourage interest in further research. In that light, we have an entry on research strategies in the Appendix and encourage all to read it before entering the pages of our enterprise.—California State University, Fullerton—Fullerton College

Researching Women's History: Access and Strategy in the Electronic Age[Page 337]Researching women's history: Access and strategy in the electronic age
Over the last 3 decades, the academy has witnessed a proliferation of scholarship across the disciplines on women, and more recently, on gender. Along with the growth of women's studies as an academic discipline, women's history has increasingly filled the pages of books, journals, conference panels, and curricula. Women's historians now have colleagues and collaborators in area studies, anthropology, sociology, communications, literary criticism, and beyond. Historians of the American West, too, have been engaged in an active cross-disciplinary discussion.
The explosion of such varied historical scholarship in the last quarter century has coincided with rapid advances in information technologies and systems of information retrieval. Researchers face important challenges as they attempt to navigate this information arena—both inside the walls of libraries and special collections and in an increasingly electronic, Web-based environment. First, the terminology and classification schemes used to describe (and hence access) research materials are themselves historically constructed. Second, interdisciplinary research continues to be constrained by the highly structured internal organization of academic disciplines and the manner in which academic research is published. This essay will raise the reader's general awareness of the structure of information, impart concrete library skills, and introduce tools and resources for mediating the quest for interdisciplinary historical literature.The Literature
Modern historical inquiry is based on the examination of primary documents—to analyze and tell stories about the past using its contemporaneous evidence. Historians rely on secondary source materials—books, journal articles, conference presentations, and other forms of published scholarly communication—to provide context and background for original investigations and to engage in interpretive dialogue. Bibliographies, abstracting and indexing services, and, increasingly, Web-based pathfinders make up a third category of tertiary literature—or sources that compile and otherwise direct students and scholars to primary and secondary material. The concurrence of electronic publishing and increased interdisciplinarity among women's historians and historians of the American West has influenced the access to and availability of all forms of historical literature. The savvy researcher will need to make use of new research strategies to identify, locate, and keep pace with it all.
Women's studies and social history are “highscatter” fields—with needed information dispersed throughout many different journals and books, indexed by different databases, and recorded and preserved in different locales. Electronic databases, full-text journal articles, digitized archival and manuscript materials, and electronic books have emerged to serve history students and professional historians alike, and proficiency in accessing resources in electronic format is now essential. However, research strategies also must include an understanding of the physical arrangement and description of books, manuscripts, and other forms of printed scholarly text and communication, as some of these materials remain in printed form, and even as others are converted to digital formats. Historians must apply the same evaluative skills they use every day to determine the context and voice of documents, to understand the tools and terrain of the information and resources in which they are searching and browsing. Information by and about women itself has a history that shapes research strategy and success.[Page 338]Primary Sources
Traditionally the domain of archives, manuscript repositories, historical societies, and library special collections, unpublished primary source material is assembled, described, and preserved based on prevailing social and intellectual values and professional archival judgment. To locate source material, researchers can consult comprehensive finding aids such as the National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections (NUCMC) and more specialized volumes such as Women in the West: A Guide to Manuscript Sources, which compile information about the scope and location of existing collections. The Internet has vastly expanded and facilitated the process of identifying and locating potential archival and manuscript collections for research and afforded smaller projects and sources increased visibility and access. Prominent examples of Web sites include the geographically arranged Archival Sites for Women's Studies (http://gwis2.circ.gwu.edu/~mfpankin/archwss.htm). Ken Middleton's American Women's History: A Research Guide (http://www.mtsu.edu/~kmiddlet/history/women.html) organizes sites by type or format of material. Middleton's extensive guide also includes practical tips on using online library catalogs to find published primary documents. Finally, online versions of NUCMC (http://www.loc.gov/coll/nucmc/nucmc.html) for the United States, and subscription products such as OCLC's union catalog WorldCat (international), Chadwyk-Healey's ArchivesUSA, and RLG Archival Resources, also figure prominently in the historian's electronic library by providing keyword access to cataloged archival and manuscript collections.
Some special collections and manuscript repositories have also digitized their collections, making scanned page images of unique materials available worldwide. Examples of fully digitized, online collections of primary source documents continue to grow, either through locally funded projects or national initiatives such as the Library of Congress American Memory Project (http://lcweb2.loc.gov/ammem/amhome.html). American Memory has spawned sites such as History of the American West: 1860–1920, a collection of photographs from the Denver Public Library. Among universities, the University of California, Berkeley's, Bancroft Library (http://bancroft.berkeley.edu/collections) is distinguished for depth and breadth of research material on the American West available online, including the California Heritage Collection.
Finally, both free and commercial Web-based products not only make available full-text diaries, historical periodicals, court cases, statutes, speeches, census data, letters, and many other sources online, but they often integrate them and index them in ways that facilitate new kinds of historical inquiry. Noteworthy examples include Alexander Street Press's North American Women's Letters and Diaries and Early Encounters.Secondary SourcesMonographs
Most academic libraries in the United States arrange their print collections using the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) system—which assigns an alphanumeric code (or call number) corresponding to subject arrangement and shelf location. Library of Congress Subject Heading (LCSH) terms describe the collections, and although that language has changed over time, LCSH terms chronically trail current academic vernacular. Its embedded gender hierarchies (e.g., “lawyers” and “women lawyers”) also endure. Since its development as a classification scheme at the turn of the 20th century, the LCC system has evolved to reflect the ordering of traditional academic disciplines. Research materials appropriate for women's history and other interdisciplinary studies are physically dispersed throughout the library, and can only be identified comprehensively by navigating the entire system—from A (General works) to Z (Bibliographies). Subject terms schematically link items in different classification ranges, and library users can search online catalogs by keyword (finding words in titles, multiple subject terms, and sometimes additional notes) to create lists of desired material. But literature on the information-seeking behavior of historians and other humanists suggests a strong penchant for browsing. If serendipitous identification of new works through browsing library stacks often leads to important new discoveries, it also takes place in a decidedly ordered, discipline-oriented context, which may obscure other useful materials from view. The most successful researchers will harness the power and functionality of online retrieval systems by combining keyword and subject searches, maintaining a productive skepticism of the way information is organized, and employing analytical and creative approaches to research.[Page 339]Journals
Since the early 1970s, feminism as a social movement and women's studies as an academic discipline have influenced scholarship throughout the academy. As articles about women and gender increasingly appear in discipline-based journals (in the humanities and social sciences and, more recently, in the sciences), scholarship also is flourishing in women's studies periodicals such as Signs and Feminist Studies. Historians seeking recent interdisciplinary scholarship on women should therefore be aware of several challenges of bibliographic access to women's studies and women's history content in academic journals.
Scholars are often compelled by the tenure process to publish in the journals of their home discipline. Women's history and related articles might therefore appear in journals of anthropology, literature, and sociology, as well as economics, medicine, and beyond. A variety of online databases (the electronic counterparts of print indexing and abstracting services) associated with each academic subject will index these discipline-based journals. At the same time, scholars also publish articles of interest to women's historians in peer-reviewed women's studies journals. And while a wide range of discipline-based databases may index women's studies journals, they often do so selectively and in ways that reflect a more traditional disciplinary bias or perspective.
Women's studies databases such as Women's Resources International and the full-text Contemporary Women's Issues and GenderWatch provide more comprehensive access to women's studies journals, but cannot fully capture the gender-related content available from subject-specific periodical literature. Finally, at the intersection of what in interdisciplinary studies is separated into “women's history” and “ethnic studies” lies a rich literature on ethnic minority and international women, which is even further dispersed. Like women's studies journals, ethnic studies journals are themselves marginalized by traditional subject indexes, and access to content on women may be further scattered in their pages. While literature in many academic fields is scattered, such relatively new and inherently interdisciplinary categories of inquiry as gender or ethnicity increase the extent to which needed materials are located across literature in numerous disciplines.Tertiary Sources
Bibliographies and other tertiary sources of compiled research are standard tools for historians. Attempts to assemble citations from disparate disciplines and provide reviews and summaries in subject handbooks represent a critical component of the information infrastructure that facilitates comprehensive retrieval. Bibliographies also may be published as Web-based pathfinders to an integrated mix of print and electronic sources.
The principal online databases in history, ABC-CLIO's Historical Abstracts and America: History & Life, have greatly enhanced historians' access to history journals of recent decades, through sophisticated search interfaces and indexing appropriate to the structure of the discipline. As noted, however, interdisciplinary research projects in women's history require searching across multiple subject-oriented indexes in the social sciences, humanities, and sciences. As well as including different content, each database has its own indexing structure and set of subject terms to describe included material. Similar to library catalogs, online keyword access to these indexes obviates some of the need to master each database's unique set of subject terms, but successful searchers understand that subject terms exist to describe and link related materials, and use these to supplement keyword searches and expand retrieval.
Further complicating the picture are studies revealing that women's studies journals are generally underindexed by the discipline-based subject databases. For example, while databases such as America: History & Life, with its comparatively strong interdisciplinary content, yield citations from women's studies journals, they do not necessarily include all relevant articles from them. Relevance to the historical discipline may not always correspond to relevance to the individual researcher. From 1975 to 2000, America: History & Life contains 293 abstracts of articles from Signs—an average of 12 articles per year, or slightly more than 10% of the articles published in Signs during that period. The articles selected for inclusion were identified for their significance to history and the database's geographic scope (United States and Canada). Articles not selected, however, still might be relevant to U.S. women's historians, based on topic, method, or approach. Researchers should be aware of the selection criteria of any information tool they consult, with consideration to limitations those criteria [Page 340]may place—disciplinary, geographic, etc.—on the interdisciplinary study of women and gender.Conclusion
How information is produced, collected, preserved, categorized, and accessed reflects (and shapes) the society in which it originated. Successful researchers will be aware of these categories and critically interrogate the content and structure of the tools available to them. If libraries, online databases, Web sites, and other tools discussed in this article provide paths to needed research material, they themselves also constitute primary sources that reveal much about the social and political structure of information at the turn of the 21st century.—References and Recommended ReadingWomen in the West: A Guide to Manuscript Sources.
