Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains materials collected and created by lesbian feminist, Mildred “Mid” Inman, founder of the group Single Women Over 40 (S.W.O.F.). Inman (1913-1999) founded several women’s groups in the U.S. and Canada. A professional dietician, Inman designed the first in-flight meals for United Airlines, supervised hundreds of chefs for the Western Hotels, was a food editor for “McCalls” magazine, and worked as a school cafeteria supervisor for the San Francisco Unified School District. She was also “an enthusiastic reader, walker, traveler, music and theater buff.”
