Review

"Natalie A. Naylor, a Hofstra University professor emerita, has assembled a useful and much-needed reference work on women's history." --East Hampton Star

About the Author

Natalie A. Naylor was born and grew up in Peekskill, New York, in the Hudson River Valley. She received her AB at Bryn Mawr College and an MA and EdD from Columbia University (Teachers College). After being a research assistant at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a social studies teacher at Tuckahoe High School, she came to Long Island in 1968 to teach history and foundations of education at Hofstra University. In 1976, she joined Hofstra's New College, where she taught courses in American social history, including Long Island history and women's history. Professor Naylor also was director of Hofstra's Long Island Studies Institute from its founding in 1985 until she retired in 2000. She organized many conferences on Long Island history for the institute and edited or co-edited several of the institute's publications, including Long Island Women: Activists and Innovators (1998), Nassau County: From Rural Hinterland to Suburban Metropolis (2000) and Journeys on Old Long Island: Travelers' Accounts, Contemporary Descriptions, and Residents' Reminiscences, 1744-1893 (2002). She has also published many articles on Long Island history.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a history buff, and thought that, since I am a Long Island native, this would be right up my alley. The book is really a brief biography of each woman, and not much more. With a little work I could have gotten the information from an encyclopedia. I thought there would be more personal anecdotes included.

We needed this author to bring to light the part that Long Island played in our history.
Natalie Naylor did this and we are very pleased.
