The Mary Lou Peyton History Scholarships
The Mary Lou Peyton Scholarships were endowed by a generous bequest from the Peyton estate. Mary Lou Peyton attended the I.I. & C. (now The W) and later taught part-time at The W from 1938-1945. Her mother, Annie Coleman Peyton, was one of I.I. & C’s founders and taught history there from 1891-1898. The department is proud to help continue the work of both Mary Lou and Annie Coleman Peyton by supporting new generations of history students.
