Scope and Content
This collection contains the personal and professional papers collected during the 1970s and mid-1980s by Little Rock social activist and feminist Carol Talbot Gaddy Graywing. Her interests included politics and government, the arts, energy policy, environmental causes, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Little Rock, nuclear proliferation, and women's issues (especially the Equal Rights Amendment). This collection also contains samples of Graywing's creative writings.
Carol Graywing was born 1940 October 21 in Norman, Oklahoma. She was a graduate of Crandon Institute in Montevideo, Uruguay, where she pursued bilingual studies in Spanish, secretarial courses, and the liberal arts. She went on to attend San Francisco State College where she studied Spanish and the liberal arts. Graywing married William D. Gaddy and divorced in 1982. Lauren Gaddy is their daughter.
Carol Graywing's employment, while in Little Rock, Arkansas, included Education Director of the Arkansas Arts Council (1973 to 1979) and Education Coordinator for the Arkansas Department of Energy (1980-1986?). Graywing's affiliations included, among others: Advisory Council for Gifted and Talented Programs in the Little Rock Public Schools, Arkansans for Safe Energy, the Arkansas Women's Network, the Arkansas Women's Political Caucus, Arkansas Young Democrats and Womanright.
Carol Gaddy changed her name to Carol Graywing on 1986 May 4. Though the bulk of these papers deal with the time period when she was referred to as Carol Gaddy, this collection's finding aid uses the last name Graywing.
