Philanthropist and patron of the arts,
Catherine (Filene) Shouse was born in Boston, Mass., on June 9, 1896, the daughter
Lincoln and Thérèse (Weill) Filene, a founder of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. CFS's paternal grandparents were from Germany: William Filene was born in
Posen and Clara (Ballin) Filene in Hanover. William Filene was the
founder of Filene's Specialty Store. He and Clara Filene had two sons,
A. Lincoln and Edward Albert. Thérèse Filene founded the Boston Music
Settlement in Boston's North End and helped found Boston's War
Camp Community Service Entertainment Bureau, a forerunner of the United
Service Organizations in the Boston area, during World War I. CFS was one of two children.
Her sister Helen, born ca.1899, married George E. Ladd, Jr., and had three children:
Lincoln F., and Robert M.
CFS, known to her friends as Kay, grew up in Boston and Weston, Mass., where her
family had a country house. She attended Bradford Academy (now Bradford
College) for two years (1911-13), and spent one year at Vassar College (1913-14). She then transferred to Wheaton College in
Norton, Mass. (B.A. 1918), and while there organized conferences on career opportunities
women. In 1917, she was hired as assistant to the chief of the Women's Division of
Employment Service of the Department of Labor in Washington, D.C.
In 1919, CFS returned to Boston and enrolled at Radcliffe College as a graduate student. When the Harvard Graduate School of
Education (which her father helped establish) opened in 1920, she transferred and
was the first woman to earn a degree (M.A. 1923) there. Houghton Mifflin commissioned her to expand her thesis and edit, Careers for Women,
in 1920; a revised edition was published in 1934.
In 1921, Catherine Filene married Alvin E. Dodd, an economist
with the Chamber of Commerce; they had one daughter, Joan. In 1941, Joan married David Atholl Robertson and had four children: David A., Jr., John
Jouett, Jill, and Jenifer. The Robertsons were divorced in 1959 and in 1978 Joan married
Benton C. Tolley, Jr.
In the 1920s, the Dodds lived in Washington, D.C., where Alvin Dodd established the
U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Active in politics during the late 1920s and early 1930s,
the first woman appointed to the Executive Committee of the Democratic National Committee,
founder of the Woman's National Democratic Club (1925), and editor
of the WNDC's Bulletin (1929-32). In 1926, under President Coolidge, she served as
chairman of the board of the Institute for Women Federal Prisoners,
where, continuing her interest in opportunities for women, she instituted a job training
rehabilitation program. In 1929, CFS founded the Institute of Women's Professional
Relations (IWPR), which organized national conferences on opportunities for
women with more than a high school education. (IWPR was originally located at the
North Carolina University and later moved to Connecticut College.)
After Dodd's term at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, he relocated to New York in about
1929 while CFS remained in Washington. CFS divorced Dodd in 1930 and two years later
married Jouett Shouse (b. 1879), whom she had met through her
political work. A lawyer and businessman who had been a congressman from Kansas and
assistant secretary of the Treasury under President Coolidge, Jouett Shouse was serving
of the Democratic National Executive Committee. While living in Washington, Jouett
Catherine Shouse took in and raised a boy whom they renamed William Filene
Shouse. CFS terminated her political career and became active in civic and cultural
affairs in the Washington area. She was the first to organize and sponsor concerts
concerts, 1935-42) to supplement the salaries of musicians in the National
Symphony Orchestra (NSO). These were first held at her Washington home; then
when attendance became too large the concerts were moved to the Phillips Gallery.
In the late 1930s, while at a spa in Marienbad, Czechoslovakia,
the Shouses became interested in Boxer dogs. They bought a female during
their travels and had such success showing her in the U.S. that they started a kennel,
champions in three different breeds on their farm at Wolf Trap in northern Virginia
During the 1940s, CFS became a president of the Potomac Boxer Club
(PBC) and publicity chair of the Old Dominion Kennel Club (ODKC). The PBC's annual specialty shows, begun ca. 1941, raised money for
various civic organizations. In addition, CFS judged boxers in shows around the country.
She became well known for her successful efforts in raising funds for charity, beginning
in 1928 as a volunteer at the NSO and in the 1940s with carnivals for the IWPR. She
extensively with the Community War Fund in 1942. Jouett and
Catherine Shouse became interested in the General Clay Fund, which supported the Army's
German Youth Activities Program (GYA), while traveling in Germany.
CFS lent her considerable expertise to the enterprise (1949-52). At the request of
President Herbert Hoover, she ran the Hungarian Relief Fund
(1956-57), and raised $500,000 within a month.
Having been exposed to music early in life, CFS maintained a lively interest in the
performing arts. She took many trips to Europe for musical events and festivals, often
company of Princess Helen Kotchoubey de Beauharnais. In 1957, she
was appointed chair of the President's Music Committee's People-to-People Program(PMC) by President Eisenhower; she served until 1963. Through this organization
she produced annual calendars of performing arts events, and organized PMC's first
Jazz Festival (1962).
In 1961, CFS donated 40 acres of her farm at Wolf Trap to the American
Symphony Orchestra League (ASOL). In 1966, she donated 100 acres to the U.S.
government for a performing arts park to be run by the Department of the Interior
National Park Service (Wolf Trap Farm Park for the Performing Arts,
WTFP) and funded the building of an open-air amphitheater called the Filene Center. This was accepted by an Act of Congress in October 1966. (ASOL also
transferred its 40 acres to the government for the park.) She established the Wolf
Trap Foundation to manage the park, arrange programming, and raise funds. The
ground-breaking ceremony for the Filene Center took place in 1968, the topping-out
1970, and the gala opening on July 1, 1971. In 1982, the center burned to the ground;
amphitheater opened in 1984.
CFS owned the following houses: 1916 F Street, Washington, D.C.; "Plantation House,"
Vienna, Va.; "Granly," Oaklands, Easton, Md.; and 110 Fourth Ave. No., Naples, Fla.
She was a
member of the American News Women's Club, 1925 F
Street Club, Kollegewidwok Yacht Club, and Naples Yacht Club.
CFS received numerous awards. In 1949 she was honored with the City of
Paris Award and the Vienna Medal of Honor. In 1954 she
received the United States Army's Patriotic Civilian Award and became the first woman
decorated with the German Federal Republic's Commander Cross of Merit. Queen Elizabeth
named her Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1976, and in 1977 President Ford
the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She was one of twelve to receive the National Medal of Arts and the ISPAA Angel Award in 1994. Jouett Shouse
died in 1968 and CFS died on December 14, 1994. A partial chronology of supplemental

There is some overlap among the various series. For example, although most biographies are in subseries I.A, some are scattered in other areas: e.g.
#18f, 95, 102, 452; the scrapbooks in Series I.C cover not only her
personal and social life but also her work in philanthropy and performing arts. Material re: GYA centers can be found in various locations, other
than Series IV, depending on its connection to accompanying documents: e.g., subseries
contains photographs and notes from the Shouses' periodic visits to centers while
CFS traveled in
Europe; related correspondence is in Series III.A.
Scrapbooks pertaining to specific organizations are filed with
related materials. Materials found loose in scrapbooks and in no particular order
and put into folders. Scrapbooks containing only clippings have been photocopied and
fragile originals discarded. In general, loose and oversize items in scrapbooks and
albums have been removed and filed separately.
Family papers are sparse, Series II being the smallest series, but some can be found
elsewhere. For example, family correspondence (to CFS) which was found alone or
accompanied by other material, is filed in Series II with the appropriate individual
correspondence (from CFS) which was found in CFS's "social and personal correspondence"
remains in general correspondence in subseries III.A. Family photographs are in Series I (if part of an existing scrapbook) or in
Series II (if found loose).
Photographs in magnetic albums were removed and put into
folders. Fragile materials, mainly letters on highly acidic paper, have been photocopied;
originals are filed separately. Requests for original photographs and fragile papers
approved by a manuscript curator. Photocopies of plaques are filed in Series I; the
returned to the trustees of the estate.
Records of organizations documented in this collection are held in various locations.
Other IWPR records are at Connecticut College archives (only 5") and the Schlesinger
(1.75 linear feet, collection B-5). The National Archives holds materials relating
to GYA, the
President's Music Committee, and the Wolf Trap Farm Park for Performing Arts (part
National Park Service record group). The Kennedy Center keeps its own archives; records
PBC and the ODKC are with those organizations. Jouett Shouse's
papers are at the University of Kentucky.
