Women have often held the role of story keepers and preservers of family and community histories. Women have also created archives as a means to tell stories in their own voice. Examples of this are seen in the papers of Caroline Boeing Poole, Bertha Parker Cody, and the Assistance League of Los Angeles. They kept records capturing both day-to-day life as well as the remarkable events.
