Hetty Green Blazing Trails
March 18 @ 2:00 pm
Known worldwide for her financial success, frugality, and a few quirks, Hetty Green believed that everyone should use the talents they’ve been given. While she didn’t consider herself a woman of the movement, or a feminist, Hetty Green blazed trails that women today still follow. How might her life have been different had she been a man? Has history shaped or reshaped how Hetty will be remembered? Join Irene Duprey-Gutierrez as she shares her research and understanding of this local financial giant.
Irene Duprey-Gutierrez, Ed.D., is an educator, writer, local historian, interpreter, and a long-time New Bedford resident. Duprey-Gutierrez’s life-long obsession with Hetty Green began as a very young child. Duprey-Gutierrez’s grandfather told stories of riding the trolly in New Bedford with Green. Her parents often attended the Green’s Round Hill mansion in Dartmouth on Saturday evenings when the grounds were open to the public for singing and dancing.
