Jessie Hillman 1878, 1882

Interesting, query from archivist at Fredonia about her. Apparently altho from Fredonia, she went here, for the music then advanced English course, then went on to teach at Fredonia Normal for many years. They have an annual opera program there named in her honor, and were looking for a photo of her from her time her.

A long shot, but in the small collection of 1870s student photos I have, there was no identified photos of her, but there was one unidentified photo that I am fairly sure is her, comparing to a photo they helpfully added to their email. Looking forward to seeing if it is her!
