CXIX

Cover: An artistic illustration of the Woman’s Pavilion at HemisFair ’68, which took place in San Antonio. The exhibits in this building celebrated the women of the Western Hemisphere, but as Nancy Baker Jones explains in “The Way We Were: Gender and the Woman’s Pavilion, HemisFair ’68,” the ideals of womanhood on display were generally not reflective of the then newly resurgent feminist movement. San Antonio Fair, Inc., Records, 1962–1995 (bulk 1964–1968) MS 31, University of Texas at San Antonio Libraries Special Collections.
