About Carey C. Shuart

Carey C. Shuart is a native Houstonian who dedicates her time and resources to benefit art, education, and women’s causes throughout the region. A supporter of the UH Women’s Studies program and co-founder of the Women’s Archive and Research Center, she provides generous support for the Women’s Archive and Research Collection. Carey’s passion for preserving the documentation of women’s accomplishments was inspired by her discovery of a box of papers belonging to her grandmother, lecturer and writer Blanche Espy Chenoweth.
