Matriarch of the Rainforest:
The Adventures & Work of Mildred E. Mathias
Thursday March 7th 4:30pm La Kretz Garden Pavilion

Mildred held many titles over the years: the world authority on carrots, one of the first female faculty members at UCLA, mother of four, inspired teacher, and author. Mildred’s life (1906-1995) was an adventurous one, where her curiosity and persistence moved her to shake the societal norms for women and to break into the academic world of science.

Join us during Women’s History Month for a celebration of her life. Travel the world with a slide show presentation of Mildred’s original photographs from her adventures across the globe curated by Maya Edmond, UCLA Herbarium Archivist. View items from Mildred’s life and legacy at UCLA selected by MLIS Graduate Student Rachel Poutasse. Those who knew Mildred will have an opportunity to share their memories of her. Explore the Mildred E. Mathias Archive here. This project is supported by the generosity of Dr. Robert and Anne Kamansky. This event is free, but space is limited--please RSVP.
