Catherine Filene Shouse
Our feature person in history this week is Catherine Filene Shouse. She was an educated woman, a writer, and enjoyed music. Her contributions to society at the time are recorded in the link listed below. I found this an interesting read.
Shouse was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the daughter of A. Lincoln Filene and Therese (Weil) Filene. She attended Bradford Academy (1911–1913), spent one year at Vassar College (1913–1914), and graduated from Wheaton College in Norton, Mass. (1918). While an undergraduate, she organized a series of conferences to promote jobs for educated women. Click here to readmore.
