Hattie M. Strong Foundation
Hattie M. Strong (1864-1950) dedicated her life to helping the less fortunate to help themselves. She disliked "charity" and constantly stressed the value of work, dedication and strength of character. The lengthy list of her charitable activities and honors includes the establishment in 1927 of a retreat near Paris for face-wounded veterans of the French Army (for which she received the Legion of Honor), the establishment of the Hattie M. Strong Foundation, and gifts of various buildings to hospitals, educational institutions and social service agencies in the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa. Established in 1928, the Hattie M. Strong Foundation (HMSF) focuses on education, aimed at students enrolled in teacher-training programs.
