Margaret Wade Labarge

Margaret Wade Labarge, a woman noted for her deep interest in medieval women, departed this life late August.

Lisa Fitterman @ the Globe & Mail, wrote this of Margaret:
... Margaret Wade Labarge, author, lecturer and long-time volunteer, had the ability to bring even the smallest historical detail to life. Combining a love of storytelling with a scholar's precision, she pored over arcane records to shed light on the more domestic side of a time most know for violence, damsels in distress and Joan of Arc.
