This beloved instructor joined the Portia Law School faculty in 1924, the year of her own graduation from the law school. She lived down the street from the school and often gave students extra tutoring in her home at no extra cost. She was a legendary classroom teacher and for many years she also offered a bar review course that was popular with students from all of the Boston-area law schools.
