Among the Most Loved Women in China

This exhibit features the life and work of University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduate, Grace Coppock.

Why Grace?

Grace Coppock not only shares my given name, but also my ideals of communication, beauty, and kindness. When Mary Ellen Ducey, University Archivist, suggested this project for my special collections internship, I did not expect to discover such an influential alumna of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Beginning only with newspaper articles from the Daily Nebraskan, I branched out researching within UNL Archives to form her story, which you see in this exhibit. As a senior, Grace Coppock has inspired me to think large scale by cultivating relationships with the individual people I encounter, even after graduation.
