Gail discusses her life, career, and involvement in the Marquette Women’s Center. She moved to Marquette after earning a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Michigan State University in the early 1960s. She worked as an adjunct professor at Northern Michigan University for a number of years before becoming a tenured professor and ultimately retiring in 1989. As an advocate for women’s equality, Gail was a founding mother of the Women’s Center of Marquette and remained on its board through its departure from university affiliation. She talks about how NMU supported The Women's Center and how exactly the university was involved with the Center. Gail served as the interim director of The Women's Center in Marquette, Michigan before Holly Greer was chosen as director. Recorded at Jane Ryan's home in Marquette, Michigan.
