Throughout the 1960s, the Florida women's page editors were setting the standard across the country. They were regularly giving lectures to other women's page editors and dominated the Penney-Missouri Awards- the top journalism prize for the sections. This time period was described by Marjorie Paxson, Miami Herald and later St. Petersburg Times women's page journalist, as the "golden era" for women's pages. This talk will be about women's page editors including Marie Anderson, Roberta Applegate, Beverley Morales, Edee Greene, Dorothy Jurney and Billie O'Day.
