Marjory Collins (1912-1985)
Photographer, writer, and activist Marjory Collins attended Brearley School, Sweet Briar College, the University of Munich, and Antioch College West. In 1935, Collins moved to Greenwich Village in New York City and studied photography with Ralph Steiner until 1940. During World War II, she worked for the Office of War Information as part of Roy Stryker's documentary photography team. In the 1960s and 1970s, Collins became a political activist for civil rights, peace activism, and feminism. During the late 1960s, Collins' interests became increasingly focused on older women's issues, and she was particularly concerned with ageism and its effects on women. She also founded the magazine Prime Time, Inc. "for the liberation of women in the prime of life," and was an active member of Older Women's Liberation (OWL).
