An NEH grant helped Norgren research Belva Lockwood: The Woman Who Would Be President—the book led to further work on the history of women and the law, public appearances and interviews, and a growing public interest in Lockwood, herself. Image courtesy of New York University Press.

Jill Norgren received her first NEH grant in 1985 to attend a summer seminar for college teachers in Madison, Wisconsin. The seminar was followed by further NEH support for her publications on Native Americans, women, and the law.
