Belle Zeller Memorial Video

Produced in 1998 by the Professional Staff Congress (PSC), the union which represents CUNY faculty and staff, this short memorial video celebrates the professional achievements of Belle Zeller, a “one-of-a-kind figure” in the history of CUNY. One of the “few women who held faculty post at the infant Brooklyn College in the 1930s,” the video emphasizes Zeller’s contributions to faculty labor initiatives beginning with her election as chairwomen of the Legislative Congress, one of two CUNY faculty unions, in 1944. The video follows the progression of her career and highlights several of Zeller’s major accomplishments including her presidency at the PSC and her later role as their legislative representative.
