Little White School Bulletin Board

 

The Little White School Museum, 72 Polk Street, Oswego, recently celebrated Women’s History Month with a special, free online exhibit honoring the accomplishments of some of the community’s most determined women.

The exhibit includes mystery novelist Emily Murdock Van Deventer, who wrote under the pen name of Lawrence L. Lynch during the late 19th and early 20th centuries; Oswego business and property owner and single-mother adoptive parent Margaret Shepard Edwards; and mid- 19th Century school teacher Christianna Harkness, some of whose descendants still teach in the Oswego School District to this day.
