A res­i­dent of Evanston, IL, since 1967, died on June 29, 2020 in Glen­view, IL. Mrs. Eisendrath was born in New York, NY in 1927, daugh­ter of the late Miles S. and Mar­garet H. McDow­ell. She was a grad­u­ate of the Univer­sity of Kentucky and the Law School of DePaul Univer­sity, and re­turned to DePaul for a mas­ter’s de­gree in com­puter science in 1985. Dur­ing her ca­reer as a lawyer, Mrs. Eisendrath chaired bar as­so­ci­a­tion com­mit­tees, lead­ing the Ju­ve­nile Law Com­mit­tee of the Chicago Bar As­so­ci­a­tion in an ef­fort that cul­mi­nated in the 1965 over­haul of the Ju­ve­nile Court Act. She also led a study com­mit­tee of the Women’s Bar As­so­ci­a­tion which pro­duced a re­port adopted by the lat­ter or­ga­ni­za­tion in 1968, record­ing its op­po­si­tion to gov­ern­men­tal in­ter­fer­ence with a woman’s con­trol of her body. Be­fore un­der­tak­ing her sec­ond ca­reer as a mem­ber of tech­ni­cal staff at Bell Lab­o­ra­to­ries, Mrs. Eisendrath had been ac­tive in Evanston with the League of Women Vot­ers and the Coun­cil of PTAs, and was the last Chair­man of the Evanston Fair Hous­ing Re­view Board. In the early 1980s, Mrs. Eisendrath be­came mo­ti­vated to study ap­pli­ca­tions of data pro­cess­ing tech­nol­ogy and its im­pli­ca­tion for is­sues of in­di­vid­ual pri­vacy which she had ob­served. She is sur­vived by her two daugh­ters, M. Ali­son Eisendrath (mar­ried to Joseph Franchere), of Evanston, IL, and Mary C. Eisendrath of Rich­mond, VA; two grand­sons, Evan Franchere of Evanston, IL, and Damian Franchere of Evanston, IL; and a sis­ter, Louise Sch­warz, of Doylestown, PA.
