 Ortrude White became an architect in an era when females in the field were rare. Still, she managed to build her own firm, and held leadership positions in a number of trade associations until her career ended abruptly in 2009.

At StoryCorps, Ortrude’s daughter, Erika Gonzalez, asked her mother about what happened.
