Women as professionals
Land, Adelle H.
Leary, Daniel Bell, 1886-1946
Principal of School 45 in Buffalo and alumna of the University of Buffalo Graduate School. Tape of an interview with Weis. Conducted by Brenda K. Shelton, February 12, 1979. Concerns her teaching career, her experiences at UB, membership in Buffalo Business and Professional Women's Club and Zonta, her Presidency of Women Teachers Association.
Interviewer's Observations: Miss Weis is very alert, although she is slightly deaf, She enjoyed very much talking about her career in teaching and her years at School 45, and made many comments f'off the record'' about the modern over-emphasis on testing and methods in courses for teachers. At times in the interview it was obvious'from her facial expressions that she was po~ing fun at herself, a fact that does not come across in the tape. There was a space heater on the floor next to her and at one point she kept her feet too close to it and her slippers started smoking, She said her feet were too warm, pointed to them with great amusement, and kept right on talking,
