Athletics and Recreation

Known as the "Mother" of Michigan State Parks system. Genevieve Gillette is remembered as one of the state's most effective conservation lobbyists. In 1920, she was the only woman in the first landscape architecture class to graduate from Michigan Agriculture College. As an ally of parks chief P.J. Hoffmaster, and later as founder and president of the Michigan Park Association, she raised public awareness and funding for more than 200,000 acres of Michigan's state and national parks.
Her passionate persistent advocacy helped create Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. In the mid-1960s, Gillette served on President Lyndon Johnson's Advisory Committee on Recreation and Natural Beauty.
