The New Mexico Press Women will host the release of its new book, “A History of New Mexico Press Women (1949-2009),” from 2-4 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Flying Star Restaurant on Silver and 8th Street SW in Albuquerque.
The book chronicles the organization’s 60-year history.
Where did the association come from?
The answer to that question is imperative if the group is to know where they are going. At a time when journalism and mass communications is being revolutionized by electronic media, the answer is more important than ever.
Perhaps that’s why Sandy Schauer and Denise Tessier, both NMPW historians, undertook the compilation of NMPW’s history. Perhaps they just wanted to retain that history in a form for future journalists and historians for whatever reason they needed.
In any event, “A History of New Mexico Press Women (1949-2009),” grew out of the interest of Schauer and Tessier to preserve what they know of their organization.
Schauer had first compiled a history, produced as a booklet in 1984. Five years later, she updated her history of NMPW and delivered it to members at the Las Vegas conference in 1990, commemorating the organization’s 40th anniversary.
