A belated remembrance of Katherine M. Reise (1928-2016), the Honorary American Representative and Council Member of the Brontë Society from 1978 to 1992:

Quoting from the Brontë Society Gazette (January 2017):
Mrs Reise was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1928, read Jane Eyre while in boarding school, and was thereafter a lifelong devotee of the Brontës. She founded the Brontë Newsletter in 1982 and ws its editor until 1992.
Mrs Reise visited the Parsonage many times, attended many Brontë Society meetings, and maintained a lively correspondence with many Brontë lovers world-wide. She collected early editions and memorabilia of the Brontës, Virginia Woolf, Robert Louis Stevenson and others.
