About the Paul F-Brandwein Institute

Evelyn Morholt
1914-1995

A former science teacher with PFB at Forest Hills, and an old friend of both Brandweins, bequeathed her residence to the Brandweins in 1994. Her house, which is close by the Brandwein residence, currently houses the Institute's Herbarium collection. Over time, the home may be converted more completely into a laboratory, exhibit, and classroom facility. Over the course of her long career, Morholt served as editor of The Teaching Scientist ( Federation of Science Teachers, New York City), chair of a New York City high school science department, and acting examiner for the New York Board of Education. She wrote nine books used in the schools; the most recent (in 1986, with PFB), A Sourcebook for the Biological Sciences (3rd ed.), is still an important resource for science education.
