Alice V. Keliher

In the course of research that I have been doing on Leonard Covello and Benjamin Franklin HS in East Harlem, I have looking at Alice V. Keliher, a noted early childhood educator who is known as the 'grandmother' of daycare. During the 1940s, she headed up a Human Relations Committee of the Progressive Education Association, and in that capacity, was responsible for a pioneering film series on human relations that was piloted in Franklin. During the 1950s, Keliher appeared on a HUAC inspired blacklist in Washington DC that kept her from speaking in or being hired by the DC public schools.
