15. Women in American History by the Encyclopaedia Britannica [QuickTime]

The editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica Online have put together this
collection of biographical information on women in American history from
1600 to the present. Biographies can be browsed alphabetically or by
occupational category. A quasi-subject listing called "misc. a-z" lists
entries for women's organizations and issues. The site can also be browsed
chronologically by using the four time periods displayed at the top: Early
America 1600-1820, The Nineteenth Century 1820-1880, At the Crossroads
1880-1920, and Modern America, 1920-the present. Some entries are
accompanied by pictures; a media gallery includes sound and QuickTime
videos. Note that it is unknown how long this resource will be freely
available. [DS]
