Philosophy professor to address BYU Women meeting March 19

K. Codell Carter, professor of philosophy at Brigham Young University, will be this month's featured speaker at the BYU Women Meeting Saturday, March 19, at 2 p.m. in the Alumni House.

Carter will present "Ignaz Semmelweis: Savior of Mothers," a recounting of the story of the 19th-century Viennese doctor who pioneered the new theory of disease that led to the saving of the lives of countless mothers.

In addition to the lectures, election of the 2005-06 officers of the BYU Women organization will take place.

All BYU women faculty, staff and spouses of faculty and staff are eligible to become members.
