"As a teacher, supervisor, and school committee member she maintained a lifelong interest in education. She was so respected that, although in those days the supervisor was elected at town meeting on a party ticket, the opposing party on several occasions presented no candidate against Mrs. Gleason" (Shorey, HISTORY OF BRIDGTON, MAINE [op. cit.], 235).
