BeschreibungDescribes the contributions of a remarkable group of women who dominated the Seattle public school system in the early years of the twentieth century and helped to produce well-educated citizens. This book provides portraits of educated, ambitious women making successful careers at a time when job opportunities for women were very limited.
PortraitDoris Hinson Pieroth is an independent scholar whose work has focused on the history of women in the Northwest during the interwar period. Her interest in Seattle's women teachers goes back to her own education in Seattle's grade schools. She is the author of "Their Day in the Sun: Women of the 1932 Olympics" and "The Hutton Settlement: A Home for One Man's Family."
Pressestimmen"One of the most fascinating aspects of Seattle's Women Teachers of the Interwar Years is the picture it gives of the day-to-day lives of teachers living in Seattle in the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s. Historians of education and teachers will be very interested to get this intimate look into teachers' lives in and out of school."--Nancy Beadie, University of Washington, Historian of Education and co-editor, Chartered Schools: Two Hundred Years of Independent Academies in the United States, 1727 to 1925
