Date:

Description:
Gwendolyn Dillard grew up in both Mableton, Georgia, and Scott's Crossing in northwest Atlanta. Although her father's farm was in Mableton, there were no African American schools in the area. Mrs. Dillard spent the school year in Scott's Crossing attending the William J. Scott Elementary School and the summer in Mableton. She was the eldest of 14 children and began assisting with childcare at an early age. Both parents worked at Whittier Cotton Mill as sweepers. At the age of 18 Mrs. Dillard and her sister, Thelma, began working at Whittier as sweepers. After transferring to the mill's cafeteria, she spent 20 years working for various restaurants and cafeterias, including Stouffer's, Howard Johnson, and the Fulton County School System. Mrs. Dillard is the sister of Susanne Henry, Mary Ward Cater, and Miriam Culver.
