Photojournalism exhibit for Women's History Month

Carroll County Arts Council Gallery is celebrating Women's History Month with articles and photographs by "Sadie" Kneller Miller, one of the few female photojournalists at the turn of the century.

Her work from 1902 to 1918 with Leslie's Illustrated Weekly is on view.
