Dr. Althea Kratz Hottel



Dr. Althea Kratz Hottel Ed’29 G’34 Gr’40 Hon’59, the first dean of women at the University from 1936 to 1959, died on January 6, 1999, at the age of 92.

   Returning to Penn as dean of women, she was an instructor in sociology and earned her Ph.D. in sociology in 1940. When she retired as dean in 1959, the Althea K. Hottel Award was established as the first honors for senior women given on Ivy Day. She then served the University as a trustee until 1969.
   During the Second World War Dr. Hottel was chair of the operating committee of the War Job Information Center for Women in Philadelphia. She served as president of the Pennsylvania Association of Deans of Women, on the board of the National Association of Deans of Women (1938-44) and as president of the Philadelphia branch of the American Association of University Women (1944-6).
   Notably, as the national president of the AAUW, she led the fight to eliminate racial discrimination within the association. When the Washington branch took a case to court, the national association subsequently lost the case and appeal, but the association changed the national bylaws in 1949. Applicants to any branch would no longer be refused admission for racial, religious or political reasons: all women eligible for admission were to be admitted.
   Dr. Hottel’s committed service to higher education and women’s education extended beyond Penn: she helped establish the Community College of Philadelphia in 1964 and was one of its first trustees; she was a member of the State Board of Education and on the Pennsylvania Council of Higher Education; she served on the boards of the old Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania, Beaver College, the Baldwin School, the World Affairs Council and the metropolitan Y.W.C.A. And she served as the U.S. representative on the Social Commission of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations for six years.
   She wrote How Fare American Women? and numerous articles, and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and a fellow of the American Sociological Association.
   Among many honors, she received a Philadelphia Gimbel Award for 1947, a Distinguished Daughter of Pennsylvania award in 1949 and an Alumni Award of Merit from the University’s General Alumni Society in 1950.
