Professor Stephanie Camp, noted feminist historian at the University of Washington and beloved mother, family member, friend, citizen, scholar, and teacher, died April 2, 2014. A Seattle Times Obituary describes her significant contributions as a scholar and as a colleague:
She was a well-known feminist historian who wrote a groundbreaking book on enslaved women in the antebellum South, and a social-justice activist who dared to take controversial stands. But Stephanie Camp was also known for her love of popular culture and her sense of adventure and for hosting great parties.
