Amelia Tataronis (Rieman) was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts on November 26, 1906. An excellent student who loved to read, play the piano and sing, Amelia eventually became the co-valedictorian of her high school class and was given the highest award for her music activities. As a teenager she eventually secured a position accompanying a dance and exercise class at the YMCA, in order to save money for college. Here it was that a local doctor, who enjoyed the aerobics class befriended Amelia and, anonymously, paid for Amelia’s tuition at Radcliff College, where she had been accepted into the music program. Later in life, she discovered the name of her patron and endowed a scholarship at Harvard to honor this man. Amelia went on to earn her bachelor’s degree in 1929 and her master’s in 1932.
