Size 0.5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 4 items)
Abstract Journalist Betty Ann Arnold Hodges (1926- ) was born in Waynesboro, Va., where she apprenticed as a linotype operator during World War II when shortages forced employers to hire women for jobs traditionally held by men. She received an A.B. degree in English from the University of North Carolina in 1950. Moving to Durham, N.C., in 1954, Hodges worked at the Durham Morning Herald, where she served in several capacities, including style editor and, for 43 years, book columnist. Hodges married newspaperman Ed Hodges in 1954; they had two children. The collection includes three audio cassettes of interviews Hodges conducted with writers, 1995-1996, and a scrapbook of Hodges's Durham Morning Herald articles that were entered in the 1987 competition for the Lulu Award for fashion journalism.
