This week in Placer County history

In the March 18, 1916, issue of the Placer Herald, it was announced that Miss Irene Burns, superintendent of Placer County Schools, was asked to speak at Stanford University on the topic of rural schools. Irene was a devoted educator and her first teaching job at the age of 18 was in Deadwood. She commuted from Michigan Bluff by horseback every week over the 7-mile route. She stayed in Deadwood during the school week and rode back home on weekends. She also taught in Foresthill, Lone Star, Blue Canyon and Auburn.

In 1914, Irene was elected superintendent of schools for Placer County, the first woman elected to office in county history. She served three terms from 1914-1926. Irene retired from teaching in 1942. She died 20 years later and is buried in the Old Auburn Cemetery. Irene has been featured in the Old Auburn Cemetery Tour, which usually takes place the first Sunday in October. Visit our museums website for upcoming events.
