Campus and community mourn passing of WASP Betty Strohfus
Thanks to a Log reader who passed this along to us on the passing of Betty Strohfus. “In the spring of 2014, the UWGB Theatre Department presented the play ‘Censored on Final Approach’ about the role of the women who flew in WWII and how they were treated. The play became a forum for discussion on women’s history, on WWII and on women veterans. As part of that initiative, former WASP Betty Strohfus came to campus (she was 94 at the time) and appeared at a talk back as well as on a panel discussion of women in the military. The cast joined her in a tour of the EAA where a plane was dedicated a plane in her honor. She contributed so much to our campus community by bringing history to life and demonstrating the importance of theater in our lives as a source of enlightenment.” Read her story and a tribute.
