Synopsis: In this text Mary Emilie Holmes' contributions to American education are examined, beginning with her own accomplishments, particularly with her identification as the first woman to have earned the doctorate in the earth sciences. The study then follows her scholarly efforts in geology and the pedagogy of earth sciences, her attempts to educate freed blacks in Tennessee and Arkansas, the founding of a two-year seminary (now a co-educational junior college) for black women in Mississippi, and her educational and social work on behalf of the Presbyterian Church. Reconstructed from Holmes' own publications, church record books, minutes of meetings of church organizations, newspaper accounts, and secondary sources, the story of Holmes' life also provides insight into a specific type of late 19th-century American woman - able scholar, teacher, and administrator.
