ezensh Women s Roles in American History
Are Recorded by Anita Libman Lebeson

Anita Libman Lebeson, whose
research into Jewish history is in
evidence in several of her pub-
lished volumes, has turned to "the
Sunammite." the noble character
of the Bible, and to the writings
of Grace Aguilar, for inspiration
in providing a history of Jewish
women in America. Under the
title "Recall to Life," her new
book, published by Thomas Yose-
loff. gathers up facts about the
eminent women who have en-
riched Jewi.1, life and who have
made great contributions to Jew-
ry and to America.
Her story is fascinating, just as
the "subject is limitless." She
points out realistically that "the
variations on the theme are end-
less" because "women have
wrought wondrously" and "their
accomplishments are stunning."
She goes into detail about many
of her heroines in If noble to •,
and at least one portion points to
several of the very eminent crea-
tive figures on the distaff side of
Jewish life. In it she points out
the following:

In a 1959 issue of the Publi-
cations of the American Jewish
Historical Society there is an in-
teresting notice which enlarges
this point of view. Under the
headin g, "Notable American
Women 160'7-1950," we learn
that "Radcliffe College is spon-
soring the preparation of a bi-
ographical dictionary of Amer-
ican women." The editor is Dr.
Edward T. James, previously
associated with the Supplement
of the Dictionary of American
Biography. He lists the names
of American Jewesses who may
