House History

HOXIE, Mrs. Gertrude (1883-1965) a native of Hampton, Iowa, attended Cornell College and Northwestern University. She joined the Iowa State staff as a housemother in 1932 and resigned in 1955. When she first came to Ames she was housemother at the Pi Beta Phi sorority, housemother for the Curtis Wright girls when they were housed at the Memorial Union, and was housemother at the Kappa Sigma fraternity for a number of years. She returned for a very short time in 1956 to fill in temporarily at the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. Her sense of responsibility to the University and its students was recognized and appreciated.
