Eva Felde Scrapbooks Concerning Teaching Assignments: Germany and Japan (S4979)


Historical Sketch

Eva Felde, a native of Barnesville, Minnesota, attended Moorhead State Teachers College from 1935 to 1937, earning an education degree. She subsequently taught in numerous schools before returning to MSTC to complete a BS in Education in 1944. During much of the 1950s, Ms. Felde taught at American schools overseas, primarily in Germany three times over a period of six years, and in Japan two years from 1953 to 1955. Ms. Felde returned to Minnesota in the early 1960s, and continued to teach until she retired in 1978.

Collection Description

Most documents are in English, several are in German, and a few are in Japanese. All materials in the scrapbooks are in excellent condition.
