Dublin Core

Description

A formal portrait of Mabel (Williams) Kemmerer. She wears a dress with a lace collar and a comb in her hair. She looks away from the camera to the right.

Mabel was born to John and Violet (Hankins) Williams on November 6, 1878* in Coralville, Iowa. She married Dr. Thomas Wilbert Kemmerer, a professor of German, on June 4, 1924. Mabel also worked as a professor at the State University of Iowa in the psychology department. The couple eventually moved to Jackson, Mississippi, where T.W. died on April 5, 1945. Mabel later moved to California, where she died on April 28, 1972 (Ancestry Library; Lovetinsky et al., p. 127).

*There was a discrepancy between the two sources regarding the year of Mabel's birth. The Ancestry Library website had a source that stated 1878, while Lest We Forget listed 1879. The archivist chose to use the information in the Ancestry Library website.
