Guam Women in History Archives at the Manuscripts Collection at MARC

 On March 12, 2014, at the initiative of Mrs. Denise Hertslet, Mrs. Donna Kloppenburg, President of the Guam Council of Women’s Clubs of Guam, and representatives of the fifteen women organizations on Guam launched the Women in History Archives at the Richard Flores Taitano Micronesian Area Research Center (MARC) at the University of Guam.  They presented their organizations’ records and a donation of $423.00 to contribute with the processing expenses. The records will be archived and available at the Manuscripts Collection at MARC.

“The RFT MARC was set up so that there was a place within Micronesia for the people of the islands to do research about their own histories. The donation of these materials will provide islanders with valuable information about the various women who were instrumental in making these organizations successful and will be important to researchers looking not only at the history of the women organizations but the history of the island and the region," said Dr. Monique Storie, MARC Director.
