"In July of 1963, Governor Carl E. Sanders issued an executive order establishing the Governor's Commission on the Status of Women in Georgia. With Mrs. Bruce Schaefer presiding, the organizational meeting was held on December 12, 1963. At this meeting the executive committee was selected and Mrs. Mamie K. Taylor elected Commission Chairman. Assistant Secretary of Labor Esther Peterson presented the keynote address and the Honorable Carl E. Sanders, Governor of Georgia, charged the members of his commission with their responsibilities. Each member of the Commission selected or was assigned to one of the four committees established to consider (1) education and counseling (Dean M. Louise McBee, chairman); (2) women under the law (Sarah Frances McDonald, chairman); (3) home and community (Mrs. Leon Froshin, chairman); and (4) employment policies and practices (Mrs. Celeste Sigman Dupree, chairman)."--"Progress Report: Governor's Commission on the Status of Women in Georgia March 18, 1966" from http://asp6new.alexanderstreet.com/was2/was2.object.details.aspx?dorpid=1000670617 (Viewed March 10, 2010)
