1997 Horatio Alger Award Winner

Margaret Beebe*

Margaret Beebe was the wife of the Horatio Alger Association's founder, Kenneth Beebe. She was an avid supporter of his early efforts to recognize Americans who were self-made successes. Following Kenneth Beebe's death in 1970, Margaret Beebe served as an active Horatio Alger Awards Committee member to help with the transition to a new president. In 1997, the Horatio Alger Association celebrated its 50th anniversary and voted to make Margaret Beebe an Honorary Member. She graciously accepted her induction into the organization that encompassed her husband's life work. She passed away later that same year.
