Pauline Tarlow Mosley ’36

Pauline Tarlow Mosley ’36, October 26, 1999, in La Jolla, California after a brief illness. She entered the University of Chicago School of Social Work after graduating from Reed, and after her marriage in 1937 she worked in social services agencies in Chicago. In 1960, she took over the family business, EM Intimate Apparel, so that her husband could resume his practice of law, and she was president of the company until retiring in 1980. In retirement, the couple traveled for a short time and then moved to La Jolla. She became interested in her family genealogy and wrote a detailed history of her family and a directory of all known relatives. She was an avid scholar until the time of her death, and was a member of the San Diego Independent Scholars. She was a member of the San Diego Bar Auxiliary and served on the board of directors of Voices for Children. Survivors include her husband of 62 years; three children; a sister, Regina Tarlow Kriss ’47; six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
