Hannelore Hahn[edit]

Evidently the founder Hannelore Hahn was recently, in her mid-80s, ousted from a role in the organization. Hahn: "Support from IWWG Friends"

For a few notes concerning Hahn see Talk:Margot Zemach#Hannelore Hahn. (Hahn wrote the text for one children's picture book, publ 1960, which was illustrator Zemach's first collaboration for a publisher.)

The citation above is Hahn's own website, and the facts as she's presented them are opinion, rather than fact. Hahn resigned from the IWWG Board of Directors in 2014, following the publicly undisclosed settlement of a civil lawsuit filed in 2012 by Hahn and her daughter, Elizabeth Julia Stoumen, in the New York State Supreme Court against the IWWG Board of Directors in general, and specifically the Board of Directors VP Anna Murray and Executive Director Cynthia Fritts Stillwell, following the ouster of Hahn by the Board as IWWG's Executive Director and termination of Stoumen as the Director of Operations (WebCivil Supreme - Case Detail). The case was dismissed by Judge Doris Ling-Cohan on June 15, 2012 after ordering private mediation to resolve the dispute. The docket number for this case is 101251/2012.

The IWWG Board of Directors contended it took the actions that led to the lawsuit as the result of an investigation into perceived financial irregularities on the part of Stoumen in reporting reimbursable monthly expenses, while Hahn and Stoumen denied the accusations and filed a civil suit against the IWWG Board and named Defendants.
