Boise State graduate becomes the state’s historian
In the summer of 2019, HannaLore Hein became the fifth state historian at the Idaho State Historical Society, and the first woman to hold the job since it became a credentialed position in the 1950s. That fact feels timely. In 2020 the society will mark the centennial of the 19th Amendment that recognized women’s right to vote. Hein will help oversee events, exhibitions and legacy projects, including a book and a film, that will chart women’s contributions to the state.
