Constance “Connie” Escher graduated from Vassar College majoring in American History, did graduate work at Dartmouth College and Teachers College, Columbia University, eventually becoming a historian after college and publishing articles on Princeton history and other subjects in such national magazines as The Princeton Alumni Weekly and The Vassar College Quarterly.
In her work as a historian, Connie was a Research Associate at the Shelby Cullum Davis Center for Historical Studies at Princeton University, where she initiated the research project which was eventually published by Princeton University Press as Princetonians: A Biographical Dictionary of Princeton Alumni.
Connie has taught her course, “Ancient World Cultures,” to students at John Witherspoon Middle School in Princeton Public Schools, for 25 years, using readings from primary sources and structuring multi-part essays for students to write. Such topics as Stonehenge, the Terra-Cotta Army of China and Ancient Mayan Temples were highlights of Connie’s course.
Currently, Connie is an “Art Ambassador” at Princeton University’s Art Museum and serves as the long-standing antiques specialist on Trinity Church’s annual Rummage Sale, as well as a greeter on the reception desk at Trinity.
The Escher family has owned and redecorated several houses in Princeton during the past 49 years as well as a vacation house on Walsh Street in Nantucket’s Brant Point. Redesign and renovation of domestic architecture has been an enjoyable “hands-on” feature of Connie’s life for decades.
At Kurfiss Sotheby International Realtors, Connie is looking forward to working again with her daughter, Amelie Scott Escher, who spurred her Mom on to success in real estate, supporting her interest and study with the result that Connie passed the New Jersey state test on her first try on October 2, 2018.
