Professor Margaret Hanni, BWHT Board Members Michelle Jenney and Linda Stern celebrated the “Nine Notable Women of Boston” mural at Simmons College on Monday, April 27. The mural, created in1980 by artist Ellen Lanyon (1926-2013) to commemorate the centennial of the Workingman’s Cooperative Bank, honors women who made great contributions to Boston and the nation. The mural returns to Simmons College after being on view at the Boston Public Library (BPL) from 2003-2013. Michelle Jenney was instrumental in getting the mural hung at the BPL and at Simmons.
