Abstract

"New Women of the Harrison Era,” an exhibition running from January through October 2017 at the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site, features three women of Gilded Age America—Nancy Clem, Belva Lockwood, and Frances Benjamin Johnston—whose lives intersected with that of Harrison and whose careers reflected changing social understandings about women’s place in American society. Authors Gloria Lopez and Dawn Bakken describe the exhibition and detail the “New Century Curator” initiative, part of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis’s Museum Studies Program, which provided graduate student Katelyn Coyne with the opportunity to take charge of curating an exhibit at an historic site.
