6-7-10: Helen Delich Bentley on a Woman’s Work

June 6, 2010 at 11:12 am Leave a comment

On Thursday, the Baltimore Museum of Industry will bestow its 2010 William Donald Schaefer “Industrialist of the Year” Award to former reporter and Congresswoman Helen Delich Bentley. The award recognizes her decades of involvement with Baltimore’s shipping port — a port that was re-named for her four years ago.

Bentley covered the port as a reporter and maritime editor of the Baltimore Sun and in a years-long documentary series on WMAR-TV. She stayed involved with the port as chair of the Federal Maritime Commission and as a U.S. Congresswoman representing Baltimore County.

Helen Delich Bentley joins Sheilah in the studio to talk about the award and about making a name in careers that used to be considered “men’s work.”
