Biography Information on Sister Hughetta Snowden

Description

This document is part of a finding key in the Special Collections at the University of Memphis. We used the biography information on Sister Hughetta Snowden to give us a little background information on the Sister. This information tells us that Sister Hughetta lived from 1848 to 1926. It also tells us that she was the youngest child in her family. She became one of the Episcopal Sisters of St. Mary at the age of 23. The Sister helped to found the Episcopal School for Girls in Memphis, Tennessee. And during the yellow fever outbreak, she helped to care for the sick. The Sisters turned the school into a hospital during that time. After the epidemic, she went on to establish another school and convent in Sewanee, Tennessee. Once she got older, she was transferred back to the motherhouse in New York. This is where she eventually died in 1926.
