Announcement for the Fourth Annual Session of Blue Mountain Female College, in Blue Mountain, Mississippi, for the year 1876 to 1877. The booklet is incomplete. The College was founded in 1873 as a women's college by Confederate Brigadier-General Mark Perrin Lowrey. Blue Mountain Female Institute, as it was called at first, started with 50 students with Lowrey and his two daughters serving as the faculty. In 1877, the college was officially chartered by the State of Mississippi. M.P. Lowrey, his sons W.T. and B.G., and grandson Lawrence Lowrey, served as the first four presidents. The College was turned over to the Mississippi Baptist Convention in 1920 and became fully co-educational in 2005.
