(1874 - 1929)
Despite her new domestic responsibilities, Katharine continued to pursue her educational and career goals, things her parents encouraged for all their children. She excelled in high school and graduated from Oberlin College in 1898, the only Wright child to complete a full college course. She settled into a satisfying career as a teacher at a Dayton high school, while continuing to attend to her household duties.
