BIOGRAPHY

Selma Munsterberg was the wife of Hugo Munsterberg, a professor of psychology at Harvard (1892-1916), and studied at the Annex during 1892-1893. Her oldest daughter, Margaret, graduated from Radcliffe in 1909 and received her AM in 1910. Margaret Munsterberg is best known for her poetry, although she also published novels and articles. She worked as an editorial assistant in the rare book department of the Boston Public Library. Ella, another daughter, was a Radcliffe special student in 1911, and later taught art classes at the Massachusetts College of Art for over 30 years. She often held exhibitions of her art and poetry.
