Savior of St. Philip's College

[Portrait of Artemisia Bowden]

Without Artemisia Bowden it is doubtful there would be a St. Philip's College. Miss Bowden dedicated 52 years to building St. Philip's from a sewing school for freed slaves to a community college.

Read about her from the Texas State Historical Association: Artemisia Bowden

St. Philip's College History site.

See photographs of Miss Bowden from the Portal of Texas History website.

A picture of the stained glass window depicting Artemesia (sic.) Bowden is available at the St. Edmund's Episcopal Church (Chicago)  website ( fifth one down on right hand column.)


Dr. Adena Loston

We honor Dr. Adena Williams Loston, the 14th President of St. Philip's College, as a woman of courage, character and commentment!

Read her biography and see why.
