Speaker’s Background:

Ann Shelton has graduate degrees in history and library science. She retired after 20 years with the Dallas Public Library. She had previously been a high school history teacher.

After coming to Texas in 1980, she has enjoyed doing research and presentations on Texas women. She says there are so many wonderful Texas women with great stories!

Bad girls, journalists, ranch owners, teachers, and artists are some of the women she has in her “corral of ladies!”
