Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Willard, Emma 1787-1870 (search)
Willard, Emma 1787-1870 Educator; born in Berlin, Conn., Feb. 23, 1787; descended from Thomas Hooker, founder of Hartford, Conn.; began teaching at sixteen years of age, and was principal, sucessively, of different academies. In 1809, at Middlebury, Vt., she married Dr. John Willard. In 1821 she established her famous female seminary, at Troy, N. Y., which she conducted until 1839. She made a tour in Europe in 1830, and published her Journal and letters on her return, in 1833, and devoted her share of the profits of the work to the maintenance of a school for women in Greece, which was founded mainly by her exertions. Mrs. Willard wrote and published essays on Female education; also several books, chiefly on history. She also published two books on physiology, and a volume of poems. Her ocean-hymn, Rocked in the cradle of the deep, has always been very popular. She died in Troy, N. Y., April 15, 1870.
