Macalaster Weber Scholarship Fund

Dorothy Miner Macalaster graduated from Elliot Pearson Nursery Training School in 1942 and remained an advocate for early childhood professionals throughout her long life. Dorothy’s mother was in the first class of Miss Wheelock’s Nursery Training School, now Wheelock College, and her daughter and granddaughter have each followed in her footsteps. Passionate about supporting the work of early childhood, Dorothy was ever vocal about what needed to be done to effectively support professionalism within the field of early childhood. Education and continued professional development were at the top of her list. Nothing would please her more than to be an active part of financially supporting early childhood teachers.
