About this Website

In the Spring of 2010, a student from the Department of Information Studies at the University at Albany was assigned the task of processing a collection for the M.E. Grenander Special Collections and Archives as part of her coursework. It so happened that she was given the Patricia Stocking Brown papers, for whom the Patricia Stocking Brown Fund for Feminist Social Justice Research in University Libraries Award was named. During the course of processing the papers, the student realized how unique Dr. Brown was in her approach to feminism and other forms of advocacy. Dr. Brown used her scientific and historical expertise to educate others about issues in such a way that was non-threatening and even inspiring.

This digital exhibit website is an extension of the Patricia Stocking Brown papers and physical exhibit displayed by the M.E. Grenander Special Collections and Archives. Both the physical and digital exhibits were made possible through a grant from the Patricia Stocking Brown Fund for Feminist Social Justice Research in University Libraries Award. It is hoped that students applying for future awards will be motivated by learning more about Dr. Brown's illustrious life.
