West Virginia University Provost Michele Wheatly is available to offer comment on the passing of Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s only female prime minister.

Thatcher, who died Monday of a stroke at the age of 87, led the nation during a transformative time as the Soviet Union broke apart and Britain fought a brief war with Argentina.

Wheatly is a native Briton who is an advocate for women in leadership positions and in previously non-traditional roles such as researchers in science, technology, engineering and math fields.

To reach Wheatly, contact Ann Claycomb, her executive assistant, at 304-293-5701 or Ann.Claycomb@mail.wvu.edu
