Litt mer om Elsie - Wednesday Journal of Oak Park and River Forest, by Deb Quantock McCarey, September 9, 2014 - Updated January 29, 2021https://www.oakpark.com/2014/09/09/a-legendary-oak-park-resident-and-friends-save-the-conservatory/

 

"Here in Oak Park, the good works of the late and great Elsie Jacobsen are legendary.

 

A community change agent, she had a hand in founding the Historical Society of Oak Park-River Forest, the Ernest Hemingway Foundation and the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust.

 

Beyond that, she was the first female District 200 school board president at Oak Park and River Forest High school, and forged the American Association for the United Nations’ School-to-School fundraising effort that annually raises and donates funds, which have led to the building of over 100 schools in developing countries around the world."

I og med at Jarl og Elsie begge ble født i USA, tror jeg ikke at de er kandidater for listen over berømte emigranter. Men for meg er det morsom familiehistorie! De små detaljene som gjenstår klarer jeg sikkert selv.

 

Takk alle sammen som har bidratt. Jeg husker godt at 'onkel Jarl og tante Else' var på besøk, og at 'tante Else' kom tilbake en tur etter at Jarl var død. Frimerkealbumet jeg fikk etter Earl, som Elsie beklaget var blitt godt dynket i rødvin i kofferten hennes på vei over, ligger fortsatt i kassen med memorabilia det knytter seg en historie ved. Og jeg tror ikke noen i familien i Norge hadde noen ide om hva 'tante Else' brukte tiden sin på! De fremstod som 'helt vanlige folk' - bortsett fra at de opplagt hadde mer penger mellom hendene enn den norske delen av familien.
