Mary Ann Hinckley Seymour ’30

Mary Ann Hinckley Seymour ’30, March 23, 2002, in San Francisco. She taught school in Oregon for a year and then worked in the Reed College business office. In 1933, she married Keith Seymour, who was a chemistry professor at Reed at the time [1933–37]. Between 1937 and 1947 they lived in several parts of the United States, including Montana, Illinois, Minnesota, and Oklahoma. After World War II, Keith took a teaching position at Butler College in Indianapolis. Mary returned to teaching while her children were still quite young, earning the necessary credentials for licensing, and worked with gifted students in Indianapolis Schools for 14 years. In 1965, she earned a master’s degree in history from Butler College. After retiring, the couple stayed in Indianapolis until 1976, when they moved to San Francisco. In retirement, they enjoyed travel, church functions, and the study of genealogy, and Mary also pursued her hobby of sewing and needlework. Keith died in 1993.
