Virginia Uhlman Nader Papers - MS 1025
|Grace Virginia Uhlman Nader (1922-2008) was born April 25, 1922 in Bowling Green, Ohio to Fred W. and Grace Millikin Uhlman. She generally went by the name Virginia instead of Grace, possibly due to others with that name in the extended family. She was educated at Kingswood/Cranbrook and Smith College, and received a masters degree from the University of Pittsburgh.|
|In 1952 she married Alexander Jacob Nader (1927-1994), an American born of Lebanese parents, and together they lived in Beirut for 8 years. She returned to Bowling Green from the Middle East in 1961 and she was divorced in September 1963.|
They had two sons, Geoffrey Alexander Nader born July 29, 1953 in Beirut, Lebanon, who married Lucy Holland, and Laurence Christopher Nader born July 23, 1957 in Toledo, who married Gail Gossett.
In Bowling Green, Virginia was actively involved in civic affairs, such as local Republican politics, Wheeled Meals, and the Wood County Parks District, and cultural activities with her membership in the Shakespeare Round Table. Her zest for life and travel took her all over the world, with trips during her marriage to a variety of locations in the Middle East, including Egypt, Cyprus, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq, and later in life to such places as South Africa, Russia, and India. Virginia died on January 1, 2008.
