Pioneers in Science Writing

Starting in the early 1920s, Science Service, which publishes Science News, played a significant role in promoting the public understanding of science. Its staff of writers included several women who were pioneers in the emerging field of science journalism. The Smithsonian Institution Archives has a Web exhibit that highlights the careers of five of these women: Jane Stafford, Marjorie Van de Water, Frances Densmore, Emma Reh [Stevenson], and Marjorie MacDill Breit.
