With deep appreciation
We, the seniors of the Whitney
High School for Girls,
Hoping that we may be able
to follow her pattern,
Dedicate this, our annual,
To Harriet Whitney, who
through courage and wisdom
Achieved the goal she wished.
Harriet Whitney lived a long and noble life. She was born in
Oswega Falls, Michigan, in the year, 1814. Her family moved to Toledo
when she was five years old. Here she lived until death took her aged
body and gentle soul.
She had always been interested in education. When she was six-
teen years old, her greatest aspiration -- to teach school -- became a
reality. Being the first teacher in Toledo, she was a pioneer of
education in our city. It took infinite courage and patience to
achieve what she did in those horse and buggy days.
In wonderment we gaze at your
portrait so fair.
We are awed at the hardship
you had to bear.
Our thoughts wander to the
school house so crude and
Where your few eager pupils
A came education to seek.
May the ideals and the principles which activated the life of
Harriet Whitney forever haunt the halls of our modern school building.
