Ask Charlotte

Who's Charlotte?

Charlotte Miller became the first female teacher at the institution then known as Hartwick Seminary in 1851. Charlotte's hiring and the admission of Hartwick's initial 27 female students made the seminary coeducational, a first among American Lutheran academies.

Charlotte was the daughter of George B. Miller, a seminary stalwart for more than 40 years as an assistant teacher, principal, and professor. He was one of 10 members of her family to share an intimate connection with Hartwick.

Now, Charlotte Miller brings this wealth of ground-breaking experience and wisdom to you thanks to the wonders of the Internet!
