ANNA WULF PISHZAK

Ann (Wulf) Pishzak was at first a teacher of home economics at Pine Mountain Settlement School from 1925 to 1927 (Guide to PMSS Workers 1913-1930). Later, according to her personnel files, she returned to the School to work at the Medical Settlement at Big Laurel in the years 1938-1945, 1950, 1961.

Anna, born c. 1895, came from a family that had immigrated from Germany in 1898 and were living in Chicago, Illinois, according to the U.S. Census 1910, 1920, and 1930. Her parents were Henry F.W. Wulf and Marie (Sammann) Wulf.  She had three siblings, Emil, Bertha, and Minna. In 1935 Anna was still in Chicago, married to William Pishzak. As of the 1940 U.S. Census, Anna (Wulf) Pishzak was widowed and living at Big Laurel, Kentucky, with her brother, Emil Wulf. Emil, five years older than Anna, was working as an ice cream salesman. She was an “attendant” at a “private school.”
