Biographical Note

Pauline Reichardt Hoeltzel was born November 12, 1898, in Little Rock, the daughter of Jacob and Emma (Reichardt) Hoeltzel. She grew up in Little Rock, where she graduated from Little Rock High School in 1915. After receiving a bachelor's degree from the University of Arkansas, she took a master's degree at the University of Wisconsin. She immediately began teaching, at first in the public schools of Arkansas but later in Oklahoma and Wisconsin. After a brief stint teaching in Little Rock High School, she became one of the original faculty members at the new Little Rock Junior College in 1927. Thirty years later she retired. Like her suffragette mother, Miss Hoeltzel was fervently interested in politics and government. She was active in the Democratic Party. In 1960 she was elected to the Pulaski County Quorum Court. In 1950 Governor Sid McMath named her to serve on the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees, the first woman to serve on that board. Active in many civic affairs, Miss Hoeltzel was a leader in the American Association of University Women, the Business and Professional Women's Club, the Pulaski County Historical Society, Friends of the Library, and many more. In 1949 she was named Little Rock's "Woman of the Year". She was a life-long member of the First Lutheran Church of Little Rock. Active in many historical endeavors, Miss Hoeltzel was an early leader of efforts to preserve historic structures in Little Rock and Arkansas. She lived in the historic family home, the Reichardt House, 1201 Welch Street in Little Rock, for almost all her long life. She died in 1989, and most of her papers and historical documents were either sold at an estate sale or otherwise lost.
