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 to honor Strong, who was principal of the Catlin-Hillside School from 1944 to 1958. 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.
