Harriet Root was born in Sheffield in 1885, and dedicated her life of unselfish service to her community. While attending Wellesley College in Boston, she became interested in helping immigrants that arrived to the United States, and began her charity work in Lorain shortly after her college graduation in 1907.
Her community service began with a sewing class for daughters of steel workers in South Lorain, continued with a social service agency for the underprivileged, and she eventually organized war-related social services in France, Australia, and the United States.
