Biographical Note

Historian Florence Woolsey was born in 1903. She received an AB from Goucher College and a Ph.D in Psychology from Cornell University in 1929. At Cornell, she married her high school and graduate school classmate, Albert S. Hazzard. Though she regarded raising her five children her chief occupation and history only a pastime, she went on to become an amateur historian in American women's history. At the University of Washington she was a Research Associate in Women's Studies. She received a Pi Lambda Theta Ella Dobbs award for her manuscript, "Women Pioneers in Democracy," written during a Goucher College fellowship at the University of Michigan in 1948. A digest version was published in the Pi Lambda Theta Journal (Vol. XXVII, No. 2, Part 1, December, 1949). Florence Hazzard died in 1992.
