Linda Comins will share her research on Wheeling born (Jan. 24, 1936) Dr. Marion Theresa Moses, trusted confidant to farm workers’ union leader Cesar Chavez, who helped organize the national grape boycott of the 1960s. From 1977 to 1980, Dr. Moses was a medical resident at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, where her work led her to befriend Catholic activist and philosopher Dorothy Day, feminist Gloria Steinem, and an array of social activists and celebrities.
