Christian Educators

Mary Lyon (1797-1849)

(Pioneer Christian Educator)

Mary Lyon, the founder of Mount Holyoke Seminary for Women, was a pioneer educator who believed in combining academic rigor with moral education, and fitting her students to serve God. Her philosophy was carried by her students to other parts of the world where sister institutions brought great blessings wherever they were established, including the Huguenot Seminary in Wellington, South Africa where Andrew Murray played such a role.
