Oral History with Eileen Hohmuth-Lemonick

Eileen Hohmuth-Lemonick, an art teacher, came to Princeton in 1969 and lived in the Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood. Before her son was old enough to enroll at University NOW Day Nursery (UNOW), she kept him in a cardboard box in her classroom. In this interview, Eileen explains the difference between daycare and nursery school, speaks warmly of UNOW’s nurturing environment, and describes two of the atmospheric photographs she took at the school in the mid-1970s.
