Dorothy F. Hutchinson

Miss Dorothy F. Hutchinson, formerly of Lawrenceville, died Oct. 7 in the Olean General Hospital at Olean, N.Y., after a long illness. She had made her home with her brother and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. George L. Hutchinson, since May.

She was the daughter of the late Wilbur W. and Emma Losey Hutchinson, of Lawrenceville. The family is well known in Tioga county and is numbered among the early settlers of New England in the 1630’s.

Miss Hutchinson was graduated from the Mansfield State Normal School, class of 1912, obtained her B.S. degree from the University of Pennsylvania, class of 1925, and her M.S. from the same institution, class of 1934. She also spent several summers at various universities and colleges.

She taught in the Pennsylvania schools for 39 years. For the last 2 years, she was a 4th grade supervisor of student teachers in Mansfield State Teachers College. Probably the outstanding feature of her teaching career was the fact that she was an authority on Indian lore. One of the units she prepared on this subject was made part of the Pennsylvania Public School Elementary Curriculum. Teachers from Tioga county are familiar with her demonstrations on Indians conducted at the college.

Miss Hutchinson needs no eulogizing as to the absolute integrity of her character or ability as an instructor and supervisor, since her name is known throughout the length and breadth of Tioga county in both respects.

Throughout her teaching career she took an active part in many clubs and organizations. She was a member of the Outlook Club and for many years a member of the P.E.O. in Mansfield and was Wellsboro DAR Chapter [sic]. From time to time she served as an officer in these organizations.

For many years she was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, as was her family.

She is survived by one brother, George L. Hutchinson of Olean; a nephew, Richard G. Hutchinson, instructor in the Oakfield Central School in Oakfield, N.Y.; a grand-niece, Deborah Ann Hutchinson of Oakfield; a cousin, Carl F. Van Norman of Mansfield; and a cousin, Bernard W. Hutchinson, of Millport, N.Y.

Services were held in Mansfield last Saturday, in charge of Rev. Herbert Harrison, past of the First Methodist Church in Olean, assisted by the pastors of the First Presbyterian Churches of Mansfield and Lawrenceville. Interment in the family plot in Lawrenceville.
