Description:
Photograph of journalist Mildred Seydell. She sits in a black armchair and holds a book against her chest. She looks upward and smiles. Glass-top tables sit on either side of the chair. The wall behind Seydell is covered with many framed photographs. Seydell broke the gender barrier and was one of the first women to work as a newspaper journalist in Georgia. She was a nationally syndicated columnist and book author, a strong advocate for women's rights, and the founder of her own publishing company and quarterly journal.
