Title

Louise O'Malley '17

Description

Louise O’Malley was born in Clifton, Ireland and immigrated to New Hampshire as a child. During her time as a Household Economics student at Simmons, she taught settlement classes for children and was known among her classmates to be “always right there for the suffrage parades.”

After graduating in 1917, O’Malley received a master’s degree from the Boston Teachers College and eventually became a history teacher at Jamaica Plain High School, where she taught until she retired in 1966. She was a member of the Irish-American Heritage Society and a director of the Boston Eire Society, and remained involved in activism until her death in 1980, helping to organize Boston teachers in 1946 in response to school committee conflicts.
