SWERV gathers for presentation on 'Keepers in Skirts'
SWERV will meet at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12 for the program, “Keepers in Skirts: Women in the Lighthouse Service” at Filipino American Hall.
All women are invited to join SWERV to hear lighthouse expert and lover Elinor DeWire talk about the experiences of women serving in lighthouses from the 1700s to the 1900s; a few were even here in Washington.
DeWire, who has visited 700 lighthouses worldwide, promises a colorful talk rife with archival images. She will have copies of her book for sale. Admission is a $2 donation.
