Gerson Mildred OHC.JPG

Mildred Ruth Berger Gerson was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania but her family moved to Atlanta when she after she graduated from high school. Her father, Albert (Adelbert) and her mother, Bella, were born in Hungary. Upon her arrival in Atlanta she met Durward (Dutch) Gerson and they were married a few months later. At the time of their marriage, Dutch was very active in the A.Z.A. and B'nai B'rith youth clubs and Mildred wholeheartedly joined him in those activities and other volunteer work in the Jewish community. She disusses Congregation Beth Jacob, Ahavath Achim, and Shearith Israel, where she was involved in the Sisterhood. The Gerson family were in the uniform business and then expanded into manufacturing. Mildred learned about cafeteria management in the schools and worked in various schools in the city. She also discusses antisemitism in the school system. Mildred discusses the social scene for young Jewish adults in Atlanta and the Winecoff Hotel fire in 1946. Mildred also discusses her work with the Cerebral Palsy Center which was staffed by Jewish women and the people associated with that institution.
