      March 9 is the birthday of African-American educator Margaret James Murray
      (1865-1925), born in Macon MS to an Irish father and a black mother,
      raised by Quakers after her father's death. As the third wife of Booker
      T. Washington, she was part of the founding of Tuskegee Institute, on
      staff as the dean of the women's department and director of the Girls'
      Institute at Tuskeegee, a domestic/vocational training program.

      Her papers, which are held by Tuskegee, are available on microfilm as
      part of the series, "Records of the National Association of Colored
      Women's Clubs, 1895-1992."
