Biographies, Images, and Archival Materials
Established in 1985 by the Maryland Commission for Women and the Women Legislators of Maryland, the Maryland Women's Hall of Fame seeks to honor Maryland women who have made unique and lasting contributions to the economic, political, cultural, and social life of the state and to provide visible models of achievement for tomorrow's female leaders. Each year, an independent committee reviews nominations and selects women for induction into the Hall of Fame. These women are honored in an induction ceremony held during March, Women's History Month.
The Maryland State Archives is honored to be the host repository for the online Maryland Women's Hall of Fame, and our staff has attempted to add detailed, sourced biographies and links to digitized archival materials to the inductees' profiles whenever possible.
