Join us for a special presentation co-hosted with nola4women:

New Orleans writer, historian and researcher. Mary Gehman was the founder of the publishing company Margaret Media, Inc. (1981 to 2014, when she sold it). The company was named in honor of 19th century philanthropist Margaret Haughery for whom the first statue of a woman in the U.S. was erected in New Orleans in 1884.

Gehman used it to publish the latter editions of a women's monthly newspaper Distaff which she helped to found and edit intermittently from 1972 to 1981. In 1988 she published her book Women and New Orleans: A History through Margaret Media, followed by The Free People of Color of New Orleans: An Introduction in 1994 and Touring Louisiana's Great River Road in 2003.

In 2017, Mary formed Dville Press. Dville Press LLC is located in Donaldsonville, Louisiana to promote local authors and artists.
