In 1930 Ernest, Leila and 4 year old Lisabeth drove east to Princeton NJ so that Ernest could attend Princeton Seminary. When he finished, the family moved to Phialdephia PA. Leila taught Lisabeth at home until she was entered into the ninth grade. Lisabeth graduated from high school about the time she turned 15, after which she entered Bryn Mawr College. After two years there she attended the University of Pennsylvania College of Liberal Arts for Women majoring in English. On Jun 28, 1945 Lisabeth graduated with Major Honors, one of 15 given that highest honor, out of a class of 93 graduates.
Over the next four years, Lisabeth worked at Harcum Junior College and at the Philadelphia headquarters of the American Friends Service Committee.
Lisabeth and George both received the Master of Science Degree in Library Science from the School of Library Science of Drexel Institute of Technology on Jun 17, 1950 at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia PA.

Husband George worked for the Free Library of Philadelphia for over 35 years.
Lisabeth volunteered as librarian for the Germantown Historical Society, and as editor of the Society's publication, the Germantowne Crier.
Lisabeth worked as a medical history librarian. She co-founded ALHHS (Archivists and Librarians in the History of the Health Sciences) and served as the editor of the organization's publication, Watermark. The ALHHS Distinguished Service Award is named for her.
In 1992, Lisabeth and George retired to Boone NC in the Blue Ridge Mountains. There Lisabeth completed published works and researched family history, gathering much of the information on this site.
In a 1995 interview for ALHHS, Lisabeth reflected on the role of Librarians: "Everything also involves everything else. Librarians need to be infinitely adaptable and infinitely respectful."
