(1869 - ? )
Lucretia Davidson was an important national leader in elementary education. She was born in 1869 near Mount Vernon, the daughter of John W. and Elizabeth E. (Underwood) Davidson. While still a young girl she moved with her parents to La Porte, Indiana. She graduated from Columbia University in 1907, and spent most of her life in the teaching profession in the eastern states, though for a few years she served as State Supervisor of Elementary Schools in Wisconsin. She retired from teaching about 1930 and moved to Florida.
(1887 - ? )
Bernard L. Jefferson was born in 1887 in Danville, Ohio. We have been able to determine only a few details of his life. He graduated from Danville High School about 1905, and from Kenyon College about 1909 with an A.B. degree. He later received a PhD degree from Princeton University. It is possible that at some stage he was involved with secondary school teaching. We know that in 1936 he was a professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana.
