The Board of Directors of the Alabama Women's Hall of
Fame is soliciting nominations until August 15 for the 2017 induction.
The Alabama Women's Hall of Fame is housed in the Asa
Howard Bean Hall, previously Carnegie Library, at Judson College in
Marion, Alabama and has honored the accomplishments of Alabama women
since the first induction program in 1971. Outstanding women such as
Helen Adams Keller, Lurleen Burns Wallace, Julia Strudwick Tutwiler,
Amelia Gayle Gorgas and Tallulah Bankhead have been inducted. With the
induction of Sarah Haynsworth Gayle and Anne Mae Beddow in March 2016,
women have been
honored by membership in the Alabama Women's Hall of Fame.
The Board invites nominations of distinguished women of
Alabama who have influenced the lives of the fellow citizens and who
have made significant contributions through their personal or
professional lives on a state, national, or international level. Only
those who have been deceased for two years or longer may be considered.
From those nominated by the general public, the Board may choose up to
installation each year.
