WWIN at Chatfield. Speaker will be Susan Ballek, Executive Director and CEO of the Hillstead Museum.
She will speak on Theodate Pope Riddle: A Pioneering Female Architect
Theodate Pope Riddle, founder of Hill-Stead Museum, was one of the country’s first licensed female architects. Learn about her remarkable life in early 20th century Connecticut, and her role supporting the women’s suffrage movement.
Hill-Stead’s story begins with founder Theodate Pope Riddle, an only child of privilege, who yearned to live on a farm in an era when women of her class were expected to focus on family and social prominence. Theodate was born in 1867, grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and continued her education in the late 1880s at Miss Porter’s School in Farmington, Connecticut, then a finishing school. From an early age, she envisioned a future of living in the country, caring for orphaned children, and building a school. In addition to a career as an architect, Theodate was involved in social causes, had a profound interest in psychical research, and operated a successful farming enterprise. Her varied circle of friends were just as accomplished and forward thinking as she.
In May 1915, Theodate traveled to England to visit the British Society of Psychical Research. She was a passenger on the R.M.S. Lusitania when it was torpedoed by a German submarine. She survived, even after being pulled from the water and sent, unconscious, to a nearby morgue...

March 6- Something New and Different! Our WWIN Talent Show. 11AM
We did this once last year and had piano music, stories, poetry reading, art creation and singing on offer! LISTENERS ARE WELCOME to share the experience with us. AND if you feel a last-minute urge to share something, that is fine too!
Are you secretly a Broadway star? We have a lot of talented women in our WWIN network. Many of us have backgrounds and or experiences in other arenas besides the ones that we present at WWIN. Here is a chance to share that side of yourself with other WWIN members. Do you play the oboe? Write poetry? Sing? We will have a mini talent show showcasing your creative endeavors. It is intended to be a fun, relaxing, low-pressure event of sharing. There is a piano available, and accompanist too if you need one. Please RSVP and let us know what you plan to do.
This will be centrally located in Avon. We plan to enjoy lunch afterward at a restaurant next door. Reply to firstname.lastname@example.org
