Subseries 15. University of Pittsburgh, 1959-2013

Scope and Content Notes:

Subseries 15 contains correspondence, mailings, lecture notes, and other records covering Elsie Hillman’s involvement with the University of Pittsburgh. Subseries 15 is broken up into two sections; the Institute of Politics, and Other University Interactions.

Hillman, a prominent political figure in the region, had been involved for many years in the activities of the University of Pittsburgh’s Institute of Politics, participating in seminars on civic and political engagement. In 2009, the Institute conducted a case study on the political life of Hillman, culminating with the release of Never a Spectator: The Political Life of Elsie Hillman by Kathy McCauley. The case study was released in May 2012, in conjunction with an event held at Carnegie Music hall, which paid tribute to Hillman’s political career and included a discussion of the study itself. (Never a Spectator, 1)

Additionally, Hillman was involved in numerous other University activities. These include support for the Hillman library, named for her father-in-law, John Hartwell Hillman, and numerous guest lectures, speeches, and addresses.
