Prop Member Spotlight

June 5, 2020


 Jill Chambers has been a member of the Propylaeum since 1990. At the time, Jill was serving as president of the Women’s History Association and was contacted by Joanne Solomon to serve on the

Propylaeum historical marker committee.  After helping get the marker approved, Jill knew she had to be a member of the Prop.


“I’ve been involved with the board and committees every since I joined.” Jill said. “I chaired the Talbott Street Art Fair parking committee until I was able to pass that into Diane Tolliver’s very capable hands” she laughed. “I have been involved with programs and organized Prop Day speakers, and I helped with Salon Society, and the 90th, 95th and 100th anniversaries of women’s suffrage.”


Jill has been active in women’s organizations for years. “I was involved with NOW (National Association of Women) in the 1970s and marched all over the country for the Equal Rights Amendment” she said. “I have faith it will pass someday.”


Recently, a photo of Jill and a group of women protesting in Indianapolis was part of an exhibit at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center.


Today, Jill is still involved with the Women’s History Association as well as the  National League of American Pen Women. “I’ve moved toward the preservation of women’s history.” Jill said.


“I love the Propylaeum, I love the people, the history, the programs … and I really miss being there!”


Jill and her husband Barry like to spend time with their granddaughters and travel both

nationally and internationally.
