Webb, Joyce 

Joyce Webb grew up in Seattle, Washington, and following WWII married Howard Webb, who spent his career as an American Literature professor at Southern Illinois University. Joyce was an early supporter and helped found the Carbondale Women's Center, one of the very first such institutions in the nation. She was also active in the efforts to pass the Equal Rights Amendment in the Illinois legislature, which ultimately went down to defeat in 1982.
