Martha Berry and the Founding of Berry College

The Atlanta Journal Constitution posted an article by Sierra Hubbard on September 4, 2017, "Who was the namesake of Rome's Berry College?" Hubbard provides an historical sketch of Martha Berry, who founded several schools.  One, was a junior college founded in 1926 that grew to become Berry College in North Berry, GA, just north of Rome.

Earlier articles in the Journal Constitution have focused on origin of names for Agnes Scott College, Brenau University, Shorter University, and Spelman College.
