Lucile Phillips Morrison (1896-1991) was among an elite group of women who attained higher education at a time when women were not valued for their intellectual prowess. She obtained a bachelor’s degree from Vassar in 1918, a master’s degree in psychology from George Pepperdine University in 1958, and received numerous awards during the 1970s. But such accomplishment, while showing marked tenacity, does not reflect the warmth and sense of magic with which she approached the world. Lucile could wave her wand of words and create mystery, love and wonderment at any moment.
