    ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

    • Constance Berry Newman was born in Chicago, Illinois. Her mother was a social worker and nurse and her father was a physician.

She earned her law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School and then moved to France with her husband, who was a member of the United States Air Force. Returning to the United States, Newman moved to Washington, D.C., in 1962, and despite having a law degree, the only employment she was able to obtain was as a clerk typist with the United States Interior Department. She remained at the Interior Department until 1967, working her way through the ranks serving as a personnel assistant and eventually personnel manager.
