Kathleen Joerger Lindsey, A Rosenberg Resident for 99 Years

I read an article today saying Lamar Consolidated ISD is building a new elementary school in Katy! Click here to read the latest news. I never thought that would happen, but it has, and a newspaper reporter contacted the county historical commission asking for a photo of Kathleen Joerger Lindsey. The reporter noted we had one on our Oral Histories page, so I found it. I also read Mrs. Lindsey's oral history, recorded about 1-1/2 years before she passed away. Here is an obituary.

Thank goodness we interviewed her. It's well worth reading because she talks about Rosenberg before the streets were paved and vehicles bogging down in mud was common. She also talks about being a woman lawyer back in those days, plus organizing the Fort Bend County Library System and the Richmond State School. She was quite a woman and very deserving of the honor LCISD has given her.
