The Passing of Jean Bickmore White

Thanks to Ardis at the Keepapitchinin’ blog for tipping off the Beehive Archive to the passing of Jean Bickmore White. 

White was a member of the political science faculty at Weber State University and had a deep interest in Utah’s political history.  As her obituary in the Salt Lake Tribune states, her interest in the subject “continued throughout her academic career, and after her retirement, she published numerous papers, articles and an award-winning book.” 

If you haven’t read White’s essay “Women’s Place Is in the Constitution:  The Struggle for Equal Rights in Utah in 1895” in Carol Cornwall Madsen’s Battle for the Ballot: Essays on Women’s Suffrage in Utah, 1870-1896 (USU Press, 1997), you should.

  1. Thanks for giving wider publicity to her passing. Jean Bickmore White has been out of public view for a while now, and it would be a shame to miss this opportunity to remember all the contributions she has made to the written history of Utah and Utahns.

    Here’s to you, Jean.
