My grandmother Rose Fraser Phipps b1895-d1997 graduated from the University of Washington and taught mathematics before she was married c1922.  Picture is from c1950 in Adak, Alaska where my grandfather was stationed after WWII (he was an engineer in the Navy) to help build an airstrip.  After my grandfather retired, my grandmother took up weaving (hello math skills) and was a longtime member of the Seattle Weavers Guild.  The 1940 census says she had 5 years of college (Washington State ED 40-61 sheet 2 line 50).
