Charlotte Carlin Sokoloff

Portia Law School, 1934

Sokoloff has “very fond memories of Portia.” She feels that the school showed women “that they could work equally with men in the field.” Her “supportive” teachers “understood that some of us had to work” while enrolled. This included Sokoloff, who was one of seven children. She worked part time as a salesperson in a linen store.
