Down the alphabet, from Dr. Virginia Apgar, inventor of the Apgar score, to legendary Revolutionary War heroine Temperence Wick, New Jersey women have been integral to American history. While the lives and contributions of these pioneers don’t fit a specific category, what they do have in common is both their energy and the sense of purpose they brought to their lives.

New Jersey photojournalist Jim DelGiudice will examine the stories of these passionate individuals as well as the social context of the times they lived in.

Just a few of the personalities included are: notorious socialite Doris Duke, business executive and Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, restaurateur Alice Waters, actress Bebe Neuwirth, politician Millicent Fenwick, and even a ghost who just won’t leave named Phebe.
