It’s Women History Month and I have been trying to profile sorority women who served in World War I. It’s not as easy as it looks and frankly and I not sure if anyone is interested. That’s never stopped me before, but there are a few things I’d like to share with my subscribers.

Kevin Hunsperger is a friend who Southern Illinoisans know as the morning anchor at WSIL-TV. He is a charter member of the Sigma Nu chapter at Southeast Missouri State University. He and his friend Tom Harness interviewed Charlotte Rae Lubotsky, better known as Charlotte Rae. To a generation of television viewers, she is known as Mrs. Garrett on The Facts of Life. She became a member of Alpha Epsilon Phi at Northwestern University.
