CHAUTAUQUA HISTORY

Jean Sherwood and the Blue Birds

In the summer of 1898, Jean Sherwood became Chautauqua’s first art lecturer. Her classes and gatherings at the Art Tent were so popular that she was invited to teach at Chautauqua season after season.

In 1911, Sherwood founded an organization to provide respite for working women. The women vacationers from Chicago were called Blue Birds. Energized by rest and fresh air, the Blue Birds went on “tramps” and excursions to enjoy the mountain landscape. They all took part in classes, lectures and workshops at Chautauqua. Years later, the Christian Science Monitor lauded  Sherwood’s Blue Bird program as a “pioneer venture in women helping women.”
