Miss Helen L. Mansfield of Bartlett School

We have Miss Mansfield to thank for encouraging Kerouac's writing in the Scribbler's Club where he attended junior high school, at Lowell's Bartlett School. Here is a later photo of her from the Lowell Sun in 1952. Mansfield remained unmarried, was a philanthropist, a mental health advocate and lifelong lecturer and educator.
