Susan Palmer

Susan Palmer, the one remaining full-time teacher at Wheaton following Eunice Caldwell’s departure for Mt. Holyoke Female Seminary, served as head teacher during the winter term of 1837-1838, while the Board of Trustees searched for a new principal. With the shock of Miss Caldwell’s departure, enrollment dropped from 69 to 18 students during this critical period.
