The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians publishes The Trillium four times a year.
Why the trillium? We chose the name for the newsletter based on a tradition in the Berks that dates back to the earliest meetings in the 1930s. Attendees of the Little Berks, held in the spring, would take a nature walk on Saturday afternoons and look for the first trillium flowers of the season. The winner would get a glass of bourbon with dinner that night.
