Alice Kahler Marshall (1923-97), a Harrisburg-area journalist, magazine editor, speechwriter, researcher, compiler, and non-stop collector for over 50 years, originally housed her growing collection in her home, while also raising four children.

Her initial fascination with the contradictions between the realities of women's lives and the stereotypes of women's behavior led her to collect more and more materials on women's history.

She was the author of Pen Names of Women Writers, as well as numerous articles on women's history. Mrs. Marshall's extensive finding aids constitute the present guides to the collection.
