Treasure Chest Thursday: Ruth Garber Levine New York University 1935 Yearbook

Shortly after I posted about Ruth Garber Levine's tombstone, I received some reminiscences about Ruth from her niece Ruth Goldman Silver. I also had this wonderful photo of Ruth Garber Levine (1915-1996) from her New York University Yearbook and I wanted to share it because, well - she looks so sweet.

Ruth was the first in her family to graduate from college. She attended NYU School of Business, graduating in 1935. She worked in the garment industry until she retired at the age of 62 (ca. 1977).

George and Ruth married in about 1952. They never had children of their own and doted on Ruth's sisters' children.


  1. Quite an accomplishment when most of the women did not even finish high school.

  2. Absolutely. A pioneer. Thank you for the comment, Claudia.
