January 11, 2015 "Matilda Joslyn Gage: Bringing Her Into History"
- Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner

Dr. Wagner is Founding Director of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation. Title:“Matilda Joslyn Gage: Bringing Her Into History”. Summary: Although she was considered as equally important as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony (they were called the "triumvirate of the movement"), Matilda Joslyn Gage (1828 - 1898) has been all but written out of history. Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner, the foremost authority on Gage, will enlighten us about this amazing woman "lost from history," who offered her Fayetteville, New York home as a station on the Underground Railroad, was adopted into the Wolf Clan of the Mohawk Nation, edited a newspaper, encouraged her son-in-law, L. Frank Baum, to write his Oz stories, and worked for the separation of church and state.
