The University of Idaho this month is unveiling “Idaho’s Women of Influence,” a new database highlighting the contributions of women to Idaho’s history and contemporary society.
The project is being held in conjunction with Women’s History Month. It will be unveiled at the Celebrating Idaho’s Whole Pride event, 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 31 in the Coeur d’Alene Public Library’s Community Room. The event is open to the public.Mike Bullard
The database is continually growing, and the public is invited to contribute by submitting names and information about women who have shaped Idaho’s history. To be included in the database, women need to have accomplished something positive outside their own family and friends. They may be connected to Idaho by birth, residence or accomplishment. They can be “infamous,” or unpopular, as long as they are remembered for something constructive.
Through the database and associated peer-reviewed journal, “Idaho’s Women of Influence” tells the stories of incredible women who have made a difference in Idaho, the nation or around the world. 
“These women are role models, particularly for young women, so that they can see it is possible to aim high and do great things in Idaho,” said Mike Bullard, an author who helped launch the database. 
While working on a book about Louise Shadduck, “Lioness of Idaho: Louise Shadduck and the Power of Polite,” Bullard discovered dozens of women connected to Idaho with major national and international accomplishments. 
“Their stories are being lost from Idaho’s history books. If they are not captured they will be forgotten,” Bullard said.
Bullard partnered with Anne Gaines from the University of Idaho Library to develop the open source database. UI invited other libraries, schools and historical groups across the state to contribute articles.
Already included are: Mary Brooks, who spent eight years as director of the U.S. Mint; Emma Yearian, Idaho’s Sheep Queen who was elected to state legislature 1930; Jennie Hughes Smith, the first African American graduate of UI; Dorice Taylor, the woman behind the railroad’s development of Sun Valley; Pulitzer-prize winner Marilynne Robinson; and Gracie Bowers Pfost, who served in the U.S. Congress from 1953-63.
To access the database or submit a story, go to idahowomen.org.

“The Fish Between the Falls,” a new film by George Sibley will screen at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library on Friday, March 27, at 6:30 p.m.
This documentary tells the story of the effort to restore the endangered white sturgeon on the Kootenai River.
White sturgeon are the largest and one of the oldest fish in North America. Kootenai River White Sturgeon are a special population of these special fish, found only in one small river flowing through northern Montana and the Panhandle of Idaho and up into British Columbia.
Kootenai River White Sturgeon have not been reproducing successfully in the wild since Libby Dam started operations in 1972 and much of the river was diked. The Kootenai Tribe of Idaho’s releases of juveniles from its hatchery program are now the only source of new sturgeons in the river.
A filmmaker for more than 40 years, Sibley has previously brought his movies “Ordeal by Fire,” about the Big Burn of 1910, and “In the Shadow of David Thompson,” about the famous Northwest explorer, to the library.
As an English major at the University of Massachusetts, Sibley was half the movie crew for the school’s Film and Video Center from 1966-68 and continued filming and editing for the US Air Force 1969 to 1973.  He made films for Penn State University’s PBS station, WPSX, from 1975 to 1979, including filming, editing and directing a film arguing for the protection of Alaska's federally owned wild lands and a documentary about stamp collecting which featured actor Ernest Borgnine.  
As a free-lancer, he worked in the Middle East and in London, England through 2000 making corporate movies during the period when film was gradually being replaced by video as a production medium, then tried his hand at setting up his own production company again in 2001, this time based in Florida and shooting video.  That company, Gale Force Films, has been making films on conservation, science and historical subjects ever since.
“The Fish Between the Falls” was created with the support of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Montana Humanities, the Idaho Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
