Nancy Daly and her shoes

March 16, 2010 |  6:08 pm

Nancy Nancy Daly left an impressive legacy of social activism when she died last October at age 68. She helped create the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, and she served many organizations that try to improve the lives of disadvantaged children.

She also left behind a lot of shoes. Her daughter Linda Daly wrote an essay about her mother's closet collection in the March issue of the Los Angeles Times magazine. Click here to read the whole essay, in case you missed it.
