Authors: Mary Louise Clifford and J. Candace Clifford
Mary Louise and J. Candace Clifford’s book Women Who Kept the Lights: An Illustrated History of Female Lighthouse Keepers has been so popular that we prepared a condensed version for younger readers–Mind the Light, Katie: The History of Thirty-three Female lighthouse Keepers. The 144 women who served as principal keeper for more than a year are listed in the longer book. The 33 women presented here are those whose lives were recorded in logs, journals, official correspondence, newspaper articles and obituaries, and recollections by their children and grandchildren.
