Eunice B. Schwemm

Eunice Butler Schwemm graduated from Northern Illinois College in 1923 and taught in the Oak Park public school system. After her marriage she returned to her native Barrington where she lived for more than 70 years, actively supporting numerous civic causes including the schools, library, early “head start” programs, and open housing initiatives. She very firmly believed that good, caring teachers are essential not only to quality education but to the maintenance of a free and responsible society.
