About Caroline

A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and the School of Library Service at Columbia University, Caroline F. Schimmel has gathered nearly 23,000 narratives and representations of women in the American wilderness –Pole to Pole–over the last 45 years. The fiction portion, except for some items in her exhibition, was donated to Penn in 2014. She continues to seek the known and unknown intrepid women in both fact and fiction.
