Sunbury Shores Arts & Nature Centre celebrates this day with a look at our Founder – Dorothy Meigs Eidlitz. An American photographer, arts patron, and women’s rights advocate.
Dorothy Meigs attended Vassar College, graduating in 1914. In 1915, as a result of a study she had done for the Juvenile Protection Association of Philadelphia, a division specifically for women and girls was established in the Philadelphia court. Eidlitz did graduate work at the University of Pennsylvania and at Columbia University. She became a member of the American Academy of Political Science and the Academy of Political and Social Sciences. For over 35 years, she was a summer resident of St. Andrew, New Brunswick. She was married to Ernest Frederick Eidlitz.
