THE ESTHER DAYMAN STRONG LECTURESHIP
The Esther Dayman Strong Lectureship in the Humanities was created in 1987 by the Catlin Gabel School board of trustees. The board wished to establish a living memorial to the human and academic values Esther Dayman Strong nurtured throughout her life, and her legacy of lifelong learning, especially as principal of the Catlin-Hillside School from 1944 to 1958.
