Hilde Cox was born in Wuerzburg, Germany, where she met her husband Bill who was employed in Wilmington, Delaware.
As their three children were growing up in Delaware, she looked for ways to teach them about their German heritage.
Hilde joined the Saengerbund, Delaware's German Club, where she became an active member. Her interest in researching the history of the club resulted in the publication of The Saengerbund: A 150 Year History of the German Club in Delaware.
Hilde Cox resides in Landenberg, PA.
