GLAM Gals is an affinity space for women of the California Map Society to meet, share experiences, promote camaraderie and explore all the things we love about maps! Our hope is that by creating this space, more women will want join our society and perhaps be inspired to participate in our GLAM / BAM meetings as well as our bi-annual conferences. We welcome you and please feel free to invite a friend!

Therese Melbar is a recent life member of the California Map Society (thank you Therese!). She became interested in maps as a young person after discovering that the Thomas Brothers Map Guides had many parks and points-of-interest listed in the back. Therese spent hours dreaming of the time when she would visit these places, and studied the maps to plan her journeys. Her first map purchase was a reproduction of The Beaver Map by Nicolas de Fer from L’Amerique Divisee Selon Letendue de ses Principales Parties, with its drawing of industrious beavers at Niagara Falls. She is amazed by the intricacy of old maps, and by the number of places in California that retain their place-names even from a time when the state was depicted as an island. Therese discovered the California Map Society while researching embroidered maps as samplers and we are thrilled she has joined our number! Her other interests include knot tying, needlework, reading about the mountain men, and attending historical society meetings. 

Thank you Therese for sharing your time and talents with us at CMS!
