Marion Griffin should be remembered

I am a writer doing some research on architect Marion Mahony Griffin, who graduated from MIT in 1894. I visited your 150th anniversary exhibition recently and was disappointed not to see any mention of this pioneering woman. She was the second woman to graduate from an architecture course at MIT and the first woman in the country to become a registered architect. She was also one of the first employees of Frank Lloyd Wright and her brilliant drawing skills saw her husband, Walter Burley Griffin, selected to design the capital city of Australia. Does anyone have any information on her time at MIT?
