A native of Topeka and daughter of Kansas governor Alfred (Alf) Landon, the honorable Nancy Kassebaum Baker was the first woman to be elected in her own right to the United States Senate (1977). The Senator, who served until 1997, was an early proponent of term limits, supported abortion rights and gun control and became chairwoman of the Labor and Human Resources Committee in 1995.

After leaving the Senate, she served on the Board of Trustees for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Kaiser Family Foundation. She was Chairwoman of the National Advisory Committee on Rural Health to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, the George C. Marshall Foundation and the American-Turkish Council.

The Emily Taylor & Marilyn Stokstad Women?s Leadership Lecture is named for two women who were prominent leaders at the University of Kansas. The fund they established supports lectures by prominent women on women?s leadership issues. The Hall Center for the Humanities administers the lecture.
