William and Madeline Welder Smith Research Travel Award, Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas

I have received a William and Madeline Welder Smith research travel award for 2015-2016 to fund my travel to the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas.  I will specifically be researching the Gladys Heldman papers which are archived there.  Gladys Heldman was the marketing genius behind the Original 9 who formed in 1970 as a social movement to fight for equal pay and an equal number of tournaments for female tennis players.
