Rock Stars, Part 3 - When Worlds Collide

Summary

Women continue to fight social barriers in the late 1930s and early 1940s, but closed doors were shattered when World War II created an urgent need for oil and gas. Women geologists found themselves in demand, and they responded with a patriotic commitment and professional achievement record that was crucial to the war effort.

Women continue to fight social barriers in the late 1930s and early 1940s, but closed doors were shattered when World War II created an urgent need for oil and gas. Women geologists found themselves in demand, and they responded with a patriotic commitment and professional achievement record that was crucial to the war effort.

Women cited include Marie Gramman, Julia Gardner (who once again excels for her country in a wartime environment), Liz Ann Watson, Helen Foster (and the historic Petroleum Girls program at the University of Michigan), Margaret Pack, Ruth Lebow and Anne Robbins Frank, the first woman to lead a seismic crew.

Featuring: Marie Gramman, Ione Taylor, Susan Cunningham, Robbie Gries, Anne Robbins Frank, Dionne White (narrator).
