Gerda Lerner, historian,
educator, and author, was born in Vienna, Austria, on April 30, 1920,
the daughter of Robert Kronstein and Ilona (Neumann)
Kronstein. She escaped to the United States in 1939 where she married first,
Bernard Jensen and second, the filmmaker Carl Lerner in 1941. They
had two children, Stephanie and Daniel.
Lerner worked first as a translator and writer. She
wrote a semi-autobiographical novel, No Farewell (1955), describing life in
Austria from 1934 to 1938, before and during the Anschluss. She also wrote film scripts,
Pilgrimage for Freedom" (1957), Black Like Me (1964), and Home for
Easter (n.d.). In 1959, she resumed her education which had been interrupted by war and
exile, and received her A.B. from the New School for Social Research (1963) and M.A.
from Columbia University (1965 and 1966). In the course of her studies she decided
to become a
Lerner lectured on women's history at the New School in 1963. She was
assistant, then associate, professor at Long Island University (1965-1967). She was
Sarah Lawrence College from 1968 to 1979. She was also a member of the Seminar on
American Civilization at Columbia University and a co-founder of the Seminar on Women.
1980 she was appointed Robinson-Edwards Professor of History and Wisconsin Alumni
Research Foundation (WARF) Senior Distinguished Research Professor at the University
Wisconsin, Madison, with the mandate to found the university's Ph.D. program in women's
history. She became emerita in 1990.
One of the earliest proponents of women's history
as a field of study, Lerner has made lasting contributions to the development of the
discipline by her
distinguished research and writing, by developing curricular material in women's history,
preservation and publicizing of women's history sources, and by upgrading the status
in the historical profession.
Her research has explored abolitionism,
slavery, African American women's history, and 19th century women's history. Later
on the history of patriarchy going back to the second millennium B.C. and
worked on medieval European women's history. Her writings include The Grimké Sisters
from South Carolina: Rebels against Authority (1967), The Woman in American
History (1971), Black Women in White America: A Documentary History
(1972), The Female Experience: An American Documentary (1976), The
Majority Finds Its Past: Placing Women in History (1979), and Women's Diaries of
the Westward Journey (1982). The Creation of Patriarchy (1986) and The Rise of Feminist Consciousness (1993), the first two volumes of
Women and History, broke new ground in gender studies. Her teaching and lecturing at
colleges and universities, in the U.S. and abroad, her leadership of the American
Council on Education Conference on Graduate Training in Women's History
(1989), and her pamphlet, Teaching Women's History (1981) have helped to shape
women's history courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Like her role model
Beard, Lerner has also been instrumental in preserving and improving access to women's
sources. She served on the committee that launched Women's History Sources,
edited by Andrea Hinding, and served on its advisory board. She also served on the
board of Notable American Women, and launched and directed the FIPSE project
on Black Women's History, co-sponsored by the Organization of American Historians
Association for Black Historians She organized an oral history project at the University
Wisconsin-Madison to interview and document the Midwestern founders of the modern
movement. She led efforts to establish National Women's History Week and to publicize
promote programs on women's history in the media, and served on editorial boards of
history journals and the Schocken Books project to publish source books on the women's
movement. She has also consulted and advised on many other women's history projects.
Finally, as a feminist historian and founding member of the National
Organization for Women, she has been a model for women historians and a
dynamic leader in the effort to raise the status of women in the profession. She was
a founder of
the Coordinating Committee on Women in the Historical Profession, president of the
Organization of American Historians (1981-1982), member of the American Historical
Association and the Radical Historians' Caucus, and active in the
Berkshire Conference on the History of Women since 1973.
Lerner described her
husband's death movingly in A Death of One's Own (1978). Other
autobiographical writing includes Why History Matters (1997) which weaves
together her life, her profession, and her philosophy of history, and Fireweed: a Political
Autobiography (2002) which covers her first 40 years, as a survivor in fascist Austria, an
immigrant to the United States, a mother and community activist, and a socialist with
working in the film industry during the McCarthy era.
Lerner died January 2, 2013, in Madison, Wisconsin.
