Levin, Alexandra Lee, 1912- "The Jastrows in Madison: a chronicle of university life, 1888-1900"


The Jastrows in Madison: A Chronicle of University Life, 1888-1900: In 1888, Experimental Psychology professor Joseph Jastrow (1863-1944) and his wife Rachel Szold Jastrow (d. 1926) arrived at the University of Wisconsin and found themselves living in Ladies Hall, a residence that stood next to Music Hall until it was demolished in 1957. A unique account of a new professor and his wife participating in campus life, the article uses Rachel's letters to illustrate their experiences in the Madison social community, entertaining important figures of the University and the town. Rachel's work in the suffrage movement and in the Madison Literary Club along with her husband's later contributions to Madison and the University concludes the article. (14 pages)
