Episode 36: Women’s History Month – Kankakee County Museum


It’s that time of the month where we are joined by staff members of the Kankakee County Museum to talk about a particular subject in our county’s history. We are lucky enough to have both Jorie Walters and Jack Klasey join us on this episode to celebrate Women’s History Month. Jorie and Jack introduce us to three very important women in our county’s history: Fannie Still, Eva Minor, and Mary Gallagher. Still was the first curator at the Kankakee County Museum. Minor was the county’s first female attorney and Gallagher owned the Gallagher School of Business.
