Dr. Zintl married and lived briefly in Czechoslovakia until the death of her husband in 1932. Returning to Baltimore, she taught German at Mount Saint Agnes College and Loyola. Dr. Zintl was appointed to a teaching position at Hopkins in 1971 where she gave seminars in Greek and Roman mythology and taught in the German department until her retirement in 1988. In 1991, Hopkins conferred its President's Medal on Dr. Zintl for her teaching accomplishments and in recognition of the long and generous tradition between the University and the Kurrelmeyer family. The family endowed the William Kurrelmeyer Chair in German Studies and the William Kurrelmeyer Curator of Special Collections at the Milton S. Eisenhower Library.
Dr. Zintl was an active member of German-American groups in the Baltimore area. For many years she was director of the German Society of Maryland and served as president of the Society for the History of the Germans in Maryland. Dr. Zintl died in Baltimore, February 28, 1992.

The correspondence relates mostly to Dr. Zintl's many memberships and charitable contributions. A few items describe Dr. Zintl's participation in the Woman's Club and the Senior Alumni at the University. In Box 2 are awards and medals received from Loyola, Johns Hopkins, and the German Society of Maryland. Final items are photographs of Dr. Zintl at University ceremonies, 1991.
