Congresswoman’s Mother Celebrates 88th Birthday

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Mrs. Mary Prag, dean of the San Francisco Board of Education and mother of Congresswoman Florence Kahn, celebrated her eighty-eighth birthday here this week.

Despite her years, Mrs. Prag “celebrated” her natal day by attending the weekly meeting of the school board of which she has been a member since 1922. She was the recipient of good wishes from city officials and from hosts of friends.

Mrs. Prag began her service with the school department as a teacher in 1864. For a number of years she was vice-principal of Girls’ High School.
