Moore College of Art and Design is the first & only visual arts college for women in the United States. It was founded in 1848 by Sarah Worthington Peter as The Philadelphia School of Design for Women.


Louise Stahl went to Moore to study in the art education department and graduated with a B.F.A. in 1942. She was asked by Harriet Sartain to teach at Moore in the Color Department in 1947. Louise officially retired from Moore in 1997, after teaching there for 50 years (but she taught for seven more years in the Textile Department after retiring).
