Bio History Note

Mary Elizabeth Leonard graduated from Manchester College in 1922.  Jan Leonard writes about this individual:  "Mary was always such a contradiction with her background.  She was a twin (the twin did not attend college) from a well-to-do farm family in Fredericktown, Ohio.  After college she traveled with six friends up into Canada, across to California and back through the Western States.  She married a doctor and traveled the world.  After his death she married a farmer and became an excellent cook.  Never having children gave her time to serve her church and community.  She was a very intellectual woman with a strong sense of duty - so prevalent among people who lived through the great depression."
