Bertha Pitts Campbell

Founder Campbell, a bright student, turned down a scholarship from Colorado College to accept one from Howard University. Upon graduation she taught for two years at Topeka Industrial Institute.

In 1917, she married Earl Campbell and had a baby boy, Earl Jr., the next year. Tragedy came the next year when her son was killed in an accident in a Seattle shipyard and her husband died three years later of a heart attack.

Founder Campbell worked in the Seattle Y.W.C.A. and was a charter member of Christian Friends for Racial Equality, an inter-racial group which promotes understanding between racial groups.
