An early educator voice has been forgotten, even though her words of 100 years ago are still as relevant today as they were back then. Born in rural Nebraska in 1886, Dr. Leta Hollingworth (1886-1939) rose above an abusive childhood and later strong gender prejudice to become an influential psychologist, educator, author, feminist, and advocate for gifted children. During a time when women were still struggling for the right to vote, Hollingworth: -graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Nebraska -helped form the influential feminist Heterodoxy Clu -joined the faculty at Columbia University -founded the very first school for the gifted -published articles and books that continue to provide insight today.
