Emily Cauthorn Bates (born 1910/1911 Excelsior Springs MO)
I'm looking for any information on Emily C. Bates, born in Excelsior Springs, MO in 1910 or 1911.
Probably "Cauthorn" was the last name of Bates' mother. Her mother died young and Emily cared for her five younger brothers and sisters. She moved with her father (who was a lawyer) to North Kansas City, MO in 1929.
In North Kansas City she worked as educational staff worker at the Consumers Cooperative Association (CCA) and as a personal assistant to its president, Howard A. Cowden. In 1936 Bates served on FDR's Presidential Inquiry Commission on Cooperative Enterprise in Europe. By 1940s she was a teacher at the American People's School in Van Cortlandt Park in New York City. She was married at the time to a man whose last name was (hard to decifer) Hirsch or Hisch or Kirsch or Kisch (also possibly Hüsch or Küsch).
I would be grateful for any information on her, especially pertaining to her life after 1940 (places of recidence, birth and death dates etc. (although there is a slight chance that she is still alive and 95/96 years old).
Thank you very much!
