Women’s History Month: The Remarkable Alice Louise Reynolds
March is Women’s History Month, and Special Collections is celebrating with an exhibit celebrating the life and legacy of one of the most influential women in the history of Brigham Young University, Alice Louise Reynolds. Reynolds taught literature (first at Brigham Young Academy, then Brigham Young University) from 1894 to 1938. She was responsible for growing the university’s library in its early years. Reynolds also served on the General Board of the Relief Society, was an editor of the Relief Society Magazine, and was active in political and educational associations in Utah.
“The Remarkable Alice Louise Reynolds” exhibit is drawn from the collection of her personal papers held in Special Collections and will be on display through mid-April 2018.
