Welcome to Coloring JOMO: Women Who Made Their Mark!

This premiere edition is the result of a collaboration between Post Art Library (Hey, that’s us!), Historic Murphysburg Preservation, Inc., and Visit Joplin. The illustrations are by artist Martha Goldman.

Celebrating some of the women who have called Joplin home, Women Who Made Their Mark features activists, artists, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and pioneers who made significant contributions to our community and beyond:

  • Henrietta Cosgrove
  • Emily Newell Blair
  • Melissa Fuell Cuther
  • Ferne Wilder
  • Dorothea B. Hoover
  • Elizabeth C. Post
  • Pauline Starke
  • Lena Beal
  • Olivia Bendelari
  • Evelyn Milligan Jones
  • Mary Curtis Warten
  • Ernestine Carr

Although this book highlights only a dozen of the many exceptional women from Joplin history, we hope it encourages exploration of the impact women have had in our community.
