That&rsquo;s where she met Professor Lore Rasmussen.<br /><br />Rasmussen fled Germany for the U.S. in 1938. While at Talladega, she developed Gwendolyn&rsquo;s interest in elementary education, encouraged her to get advanced degrees, and emboldened her to move to the North. The two women formed a friendship that would last a lifetime. She spoke to <em>Eight Forty-Eight</em> about her friend and instructor.</p></p> Tue, 22 Mar 2011 12:42:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-03-22/chicago-educator-remembers-instructor-who-shaped-her-life-84072
