Biographical / Historical

Margaret Whitman appears to have attended Northern in the late 1940s. Not much else is known about her. She may be the Margaret Whitman that Whitman Hall is named after. However, she is not in A Sense of Time or Northern's 75 Year History. I have been unable to find any other information about her time at Northern.
