Women Behind the Scenes at the Prop

Thousands of women have made their mark on the Propylaeum, but the many women who worked behind the scenes to support and aid the operations of the organization throughout the years have not been recognized. Along with their roles as wives, mothers, and widows, these women worked as curator, club manager, secretary, business manager, office worker, cook, tea room manager, waitress and maid at the Prop. The long-term service of these women maintained the property and allowed the organization to run smoothly.
