It is a fascinating coincidence that Margaret Plumb graduated from the very special girl’s school Hunter College High School, in the first decade of the 1900s. I graduated there in 1977 and my sister in 1976. Eve Kahn, who kindly wrote on my project for the New York Times,  currently has a daughter enrolled at HCHS. Margaret went on to have a career as a librarian at Hunter College. Seems like this material was meant to fall into my hands. Too bad that I didn’t know in the 1980s, when I was living in NYC after graduating college, while Margaret was still alive…..
