Class, 1928

In Pennsylvania schools, in addition to the traditionally observed holidays, there were three legally recognized special observance days: Arbor and Bird Day, Pennsylvania Day, and Frances Willard Day. Frances Willard, 1839-1898, was an educator, born in New York, who helped establish the Women's Christian Temperance Union. Frances Willard Day was devoted to the study of her life and principles.
