Excerpts from Letter from Gertrude Weil to her family, March 18, 1897
Gertrude Weil, 1879 - 1971
This letter describes some of the activities in which Gertrude delighted in high school. As indicated by her excited recounting of an important basketball game, Gertrude became an avid athlete while at Horace Mann; her gym teacher was Margaret Stanton Lawrence, the daughter of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. She also became involved in a kindergarten run by Horace Mann students for neighborhood children; here she gives an insightful analysis of her work with the kindergarten.
