Wiesenfeld, Sally, 1924-



  • Existence: 1924-

Sally Wiesenfeld joined Another Mother for Peace after hearing Peg Mullen, a La Porte City woman, speak out about her son's death in Vietnam. Wiesenfeld, whose husband was a math professor at the University of Northern Iowa, introduced herself to Mullen and volunteered to help her. Wiesenfeld provided support for Mullen in many ways--from helping with her housework to writing letters. Wiesenfeld also helped organize information tables in shopping malls and at the 1971 Waterloo Cattle Congress. Wiesenfeld's husband passed away in 1979, and she eventually moved to Iowa City.
