McLean County Museum of History
Anna May Christian, 1914.

One of Bloomington-Normal's early feminists, Anna May Christian, was proud to live her life as a single woman at the turn of the 20th century.

This episode of McHistory details Christian's life as a feminist and leader of the Amateur Musical Club.

WGLT's Mary Cullen produced this episode of McHistory featuring Bill Kemp of the McLean County Museum of History and MaKenna Lockhart with the Evergreen Memorial Cemetery Walk.

Lockhart will play Christian at this year's Cemetery Walk, which takes place the first two weekends in October.
