and, indeed, the perfect
typist.
To sum it up she is a
remarkable woman. In
the 54 years of her mar-
ried life with the late
James I. Ellmann, the
prominent attorney who
served for several years
as a Highland Park judge,
she was the hostess in
whose home, where the
couple resided for more
than 40 years, were held
notable social, political
and Zionist functions,

with distinguished people
as guests.
She was already estab-
lishing a reputation as a
poet of note, and her works
could fill volumes.
She wrote book reviews
and reported on operatic
and other musical events
for local newspapers.
She is all of that to this
day — and that is what
makes her such a re-
markable woman. At 90
her typing is faultless,
and she does not write
gossip. She is the marvel-
ous observer who reads
extensively and commen-
tates fluently. While
many of her poems are
addressed to her grand-
children, she is limitless
in her subject matter and
to this day produces ver-
ses that have enchanted
young and old.
On her 90th birthday, in
her Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
home, people of all faiths
will be among the many
who visit her, to greet
her, and to enjoy the re-
freshments she herself
prepares with culinary
skill.
She takes great pride in
her children, the two De-
troit attorneys, Erwin and
William; her world famous
Richard
Prof.
son,
Ellmann, the acknowl-
edged leading authority on
Joyce and Yeats, and in
her grandchildren who are
now making their marks in
the academic world.
The roles played by the
second and third genera-
tions of the Ellmanns are
best described by her, and
here, too, she emerges
with poetic skill in por-
traying the family tree:

Barbara R. Nurenberg,
formerly director of coun-
seling service for the
Jewish Vocational Serv-
ice and Community
Workshop, has been pro-
moted to assistant execu-
tive director.
Mrs. Nurenl rg has
lleen associated with the
agency since 1970 when
she became one of the
first counselors in the
newly organized South-
field branch of the
agency. Since that time
Mrs. Nurenberg has par-
ticipated in the growth of

"On Feb. 13, I will have
my final open house and I
can boast I am a one-
day-old nonagenarian.
My granddaughter, Lucy,
from England promises to
represent the family.
Erwin intended to make
it but he is immersed in
trying to put 1,400
teachers back to work. I
am putting my faith in
vacationing Detroiters
and others around me, if I
drag along till then.
"Dick recently re-
turned from a lecture
tour through Romania.
We will have a small book
out here by Faber and Ox-
ford in England while he
works on a biography of
Oscar Wilde. In spring he
will come with Mary to
lecture in California and
colleges in the east but
mostly at the University
of Chicago. They will visit
me also. The older daugh-
ter is at Oxford working
on her PhD and the son
graduated from the Har-
vard Law School and is
now with a judge in At-

Texas."
She lets it be known
that "on Feb. 13 I will
have my last open house."
No one believes it. She is
still the remarkably
energetic lady who not
only plans her own birth-
day parties but arranges
them masterfully and
feeds her guests to satisfy
the most discriminating
gourmet.

Hopkins and now has an
