Edith House Lecture Series
The Edith House Lecture Series in Law is named for Winder native, Ms. Edith House, co-valedictorian of the Class of 1925. Ms. House was one of the two women to graduate in the Class of 1925 – the first Class at the School of Law to graduate women. Ms. House practiced law for nearly forty years, retiring from her esteemed position as Assistant US Attorney for the Southern District of Florida in 1963. She lived in Jacksonville, Florida until her death in December 1987.
The Edith House Lecture Series seeks to extol the memory of Ms. House by paying tribute to her accomplishments each year by bringing a female legal mind to the School of Law to speak on her experiences being a woman in the law.
