Fenster Lee Meiscer OHC.JPG

Originally from New York, Lee Meiscer (Fenster) moved to Atlanta where she married Samuel Benjamin Fenster in 1918. They had three sons, including one set of twins. One of the twins (Herbert) died in World War II (he was in the army) and the other (Martin) was murdered in 1972 by an armed robber who broke into the Fenster home and held Lee Fenster and her two sons captive. Lee Fenster was very active in the Gold Star Mothers, a group of women who had lost sons in wars. Her third son (Theodore) became the president of John Marshall Law School until his death in 1991. Lee Fenster worked in the women's clothing trade, designing and sewing designer clothing.
