    Abstract:
    Many girls in North Carolina have Mary Mendenhall Hobbs to thank for being able to reach a higher plane of living. Born in 1852 in Jamestown, North Carolina, Mary received excellent education in history, literature, math, and languages. After two years of working together at New Garden Boarding School, Mary and Lewis Lyndon Hobbs married, and Lewis became the first president of Guildford College. Over her life, Mary's concern for an educated womanhood grew, resulting in the Committee on Girls' Aid and later establishment of the Industrial State Normal College, now the Woman's College at Greensboro. Due to her pioneer interest in women's higher education, Mary Mendenhall Hobbs was later awarded the degree of Doctor of Literature by the University of North Carolina in 1921.
