Editorial Reviews


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 of Chartered Schools: Two Hundred Years of Independent Academies in the United States, 1727 to 1925)

The book's photographic illustrations, well chosen from a variety of local archives, gracefully underscore the text. This book will interest anyone seeking a Seattle-specific analysis of women in education, and anyone interested in how female teachers worked within the confines of one of the only professions available to them during the era, successfully shaping their personal destinies.


Book Description

Vivid portraits of a cohort of women teachers who dominated the Seattle public school system in the early 20th century
