Quillin, Mrs. Ellen Schultz, 422 West Kings Highway, San Antonio, Texas.
Former Saginaw resident and school teacher passed away Wednesday, May 6, 1970 at her home. Age 78 years. Mrs. Quillin led a crusade to build Witte Memorial Museum and served as its director for 34 years. She was known as a scientist, author, museum curator and art devotee. Because of her interest and persistence, permission was granted in 1925 by Mayor John Tobin for a permanent museum. She was instrumental in the growth of the museum from a collection exhibited in two rooms at Main Avenue High School, where she was a teacher of science courses, to the elaborate development at the Brackenridge Park site. Mrs. Quillin was a widely known author on natural history and archeology of the Southwest, and among her eight books was The Story of the Witte Memorial Museum - 1922-1960, written in collaboration with Bess Carroll Woolford and published by the Museum Association in 1967. Mrs. Quillin, a native of Saginaw County, held a master of science degree from the University of Michigan with post-graduate work at the University of Texas. Surviving, besides her husband, are two sisters, Mrs. Harvey Bow, Saginaw; Mrs. William Wilcox, Lake Orion; also three nieces and a nephew, Mrs. Willard Black, Mrs. Robert Sanford, Mrs. C.J. Dresden and Donald H. Bow. Funeral service took place Friday May 8, 1970 at San Antonio, Texas.
