Georgiana Fulton: An Unsung Tour de Force
Susan McGee Bailey met her first Ďbest friendí at the age of nine and was new to the area: Miss Georgiana Fultonís house was on the way to the school bus stop and Susan passed her ramshackle cottage and flourishing gardens daily. The flowers sparked a conversation that ignited a friendship & discussions that continued beyond school years and the scope of Mystic. Georgiana Fulton (1869 - 1967), was an independent thinker, artist, and the last teacher in the one room schoolhouse on Masonís Island.
Having recently begun to further research Miss Fultonís life and career, Susan Bailey will talk about the results as well as the many stories Miss Fulton shared with her as a child. The stories reveal much about Masonís Island in the 1920s and Ď30s as well as the early years of the Mystic Art Association and tantalizing aspects of Miss Fultonís life before she came to Connecticut, including her origins in Shreveport, LA and her years in Paris, France before World War I.Susan McGee Bailey received a BA in History from Wellesley College, an MA and Ph.D from the University of Michigan and held a post doctoral fellowship in Public Health from Johns Hopkins.
