She is endeared to North Carolinians for her efforts to close the University of North Carolina when it was being disgraced by the carpet-bag regime, and then working to get it reopened a few years later under a new regime.

Abstract:
When wives accompanied their husbands/legislators to a term of the North Carolina General Assembly, there usually wasn't much for them to do, except remain in their hotel rooms. They didn't know other wives when they came and still didn't know them when they went home. In 1921, Mrs. B.H. Griffin conceived the idea of the Sir Walter Cabinet as a way to bring the wives together. Grimes recounts what its development has been, growing from a group of five or six women into an important society of sixty members presently.
