dc.descriptionFinding aid for a collection. Collectiond escription: Frances Mae Kubitz Crater was born July 12, 1941. She graduated in 1963 from the College of William and Mary with an A.B. in Greek language and history. In 1974 she received a Master of Management degree from the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University. Throughout her school career she was an advocate for women's rights, an avocation she carried into her adulthood with her participation in organizations that worked for equality. From 1969 until 1974 she worked for NOW, a civil rights organization dedicated to bringing women into the mainstream of society. Most of these papers are records of Fran Crater's work with the women's movement in the first half of the 1970's when the growth of the National Organization for Women (NOW) was countrywide, and when the work for the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment was a major movement throughout the United States. Fran Crater, along with her mother-in-law Flora Trimmer Crater, whose work is also represented in these papers, were important organizers in the women's movement and in NOW and ERA.en_US
