Louise Lamb


Louise Lamb, a Baltimore area high school teacher for 25 years, died Thursday at her home at the Hampton House in Towson. She was 80.

Services will be held at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Morgan State University Christian Center.

Born in Henderson, N.C., the former Louise Parham moved to Baltimore in 1947 and began teaching at Sollers Point High School in Turners Station. She ended her 25-year teaching career in 1972 at her second school in the area, Cockeysville High School.

She earned a bachelor of arts degree from Shaw University in Raleigh, N.C., and a master's degree in English from Columbia University.

Mrs. Lamb is survived by two sons, Dr. Arthur Clifton Lamb Jr. of Davis, Calif., and Carroll G. Lamb of Amherst, Mass.; and a sister, Bettie E. Parham of New York City.

The family suggests memorial contributions to the Arthur Clifton Lamb Prize for Play Writing, in care of the Morgan State Women.
