Alum in the News


On April 18th at 6:30 p.m. in Nissan Auditorium, come celebrate the life of MUW Graduate and Mississippi’s most significant conservation pioneer, Fannye A. Cook.

Cook, a 1911 graduate, was born in 1889. She was the force behind the creation of the State Game and Fish Commission (now the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks), the founding of the Museum of Natural Science, the creation of wildlife management areas, the protection of the Gulf of Mexico’s barrier islands, cataloging Mississippi’s flora and fauna, researching. and teaching at a time when women were considered generally unsuited for the serious businesses of politics and science.

A glimpse at Miss Cook’s remarkable life unfolds in a half-hour, biographical performance by wildlife biologist Dr. Cathy Shropshire. Shropshire’s theatrical incarnation of Miss Cook entertains and educates in the true spirit of the incredible Fannye Cook.
