MBB: Trudy Hanmer signs her new book Wrought With Steadfast Will: A History of Emma Willard School!
Troy Night Out
Trudy J. Hanmer is associate head emerita of Emma Willard School. As associate head of school for thirty years, she played a variety of roles, including director of college counseling, director of admissions, and member of the history department. During 1986-1987 and 1989-1990 she served as acting head of school. In spite of these commitments, however, from her earliest days on the campus she was fascinated by the school's history and determined someday to capture that history in a book. Wrought With Steadfast Will is the result. Ms Hanmer earned a B.A. in United States Studies from Wellesley College and an M.A. in American History from the University of Virginia.
