Mary Mendenhall Hobbs Papers

A significant portion of the Hobbs collection was digitized for this project.  It includes a wide variety of materials, such as correspondence, essays, lecture notes, clippings, manuscripts, and poetry.

A native of Guilford County, Mary Mendenhall Hobbs (1852-1930) was an important local and national voice in the education of women.  Although born into a Quaker family her interest in the education of young women did not focus solely on local Quaker girls. Rather, she developed an interest and passion for providing better educational opportunities for all girls. In addition, as this collection  demonstrates (especially as seen in her many essays), she was passionate about many other causes, including women's suffrage, capital punishment, religion, and historical topics including local history.
