When Christabel Fiske (1869-1956) died, Helen Lockwood, a former colleague, praised her as "one of Vassar's great women." From 1903 to 1940 Miss Fiske taught English at Vassar, a career for which she prepared at Cornell and Columbia University, now George Washington University. She had a wide range of literary interest, including English and German medieval literature, Milton, and the study of language. Known as a stimulating teacher who took great pains to develop each student's abilities, Miss Fiske was reputed to dismiss classes when she found the students were unprepared. She was editor of the Vassar Medieval Studies and, for fourteen years, of the Vassar Journal of Undergraduate Studies.
Two unpublished manuscripts "Robert Burton's Imagery" and "Reminiscent Imagery in THE GOLDEN BOWL" with letters to possible publishers, 1943.
