“Doris M. Drury: Regis Professor and Pioneer Economist” will be on display in the Doyle and Margaret Hartman Gallery in the Dayton Memorial Library during June 2009. She taught at Regis University as the John J. Sullivan Professor of Free Enterprise Economics from 1989 – 1997, and was also the executive director of Regis’ Master of Business Administration Program. During her Denver career in banking and economic forecasting, she opened many doors for professional women. She became the first full professor at the University of Denver in 1965, the first female chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, MO in 1980, and a founding director of the Women’s Bank, Denver in 1978, giving women access to credit without the co-signature of their father or husband.
There is also an exhibit of Archives’ rare hand written sheets of Biblical texts (The Book of Hours) on display in the Library foyer.
