January 1, 2019

1975 – Carmel, California

Phyllis Freeman was educated at the Bradford College in Haverhill, Massachusetts and Saint Lawrence College, Canton, New York. She has three married daughters. As the wife of Fulton Freeman, foreign service officer and ambassador, Mrs. Freeman could always be counted on to have a special worthwhile project under her wing whether in Washington, DC between assignments or in a host country. While in Rome, she started the PTA of the Overseas School and was the organizer of the American Women’s Club of Rome which is now the largest group of its kind in Europe. In Bogota, Mrs. Freeman worked to develop and expand the Jardin Infantile, a pre-school and kindergarten for children of poor and working mothers. Her work in Mexico included organizing various charity affairs and providing guidance to the American community. She was instrumental in fund raising efforts of the Guias de Mexico (Girl Scouts) which resulted in their building a five-story national headquarters in Mexico City. Since 1969, she has taken a leadership role with the Girl Scouts, USA, serving as a national board member. She was chairman of the Mexican-American Conference held in Prescott, Arizona and a delegate of the Girl Scouts, USA, to the Western Hemisphere Conference in Lima, Peru, in 1973. (Deceased 2001)
