About | Mary Schein was born on June 22, 1931 in Wadena, Minnesota and lived in many places in her childhood, including Panama and Carmel, California. She graduated from Stanford University in 1953 and worked at the Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. and at the Advanced Management Program of George Washington University. Mary met her husband Edgar in Washington and was married there in 1956. They moved to Cambridge, MA where they resided until her death. Mary was a lover of music having sung in the Stanford Chorus and attended ten performances of Wagner’s Ring in different parts of the world, including Bayreuth in 2005. She was also an avid birder and traveled to Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, the Galapagos, and Antarctica to experience a wide array of bird habitats. Her interests in arts and crafts led her to volunteer at the Society for Arts and Crafts in Boston and at the Cambridge Art Association where she helped to found an annual exhibition of art works by handicapped children called The Art of Love. She was on the Board of Boston Baroque, Hospice of Cambridge and a member of the Mass Audubon Council, the Harvard Travelers Club, the Chilton Club and several mother’s clubs in Cambridge. She was also a member of the founding group of Cambridge at Home. Throughout her life she was an avid tennis player, gardener, gourmet cook who loved to entertain at small dinner parties and a passionate lover of cats.
