Description: For our very first episode of MU Collections Spotlight, we are celebrating International Women’s Day by showcasing some women in our collections. We will give you a brief overview of how to access the Teresa Deevy materials that we have digitized. We will also look at a series of letters and wills from the Graham Collection demonstrating the difficulties faced by a recently widowed mother at the time.
Special thanks to the Maynooth University Archivist Róisín Berry for her tremendous work on the Teresa Deevy collection and for providing all of the information used to provide background on Teresa Deevy.
