Mitchell, Helen B. 'The North and South are Here Met': Almira Hart Lincoln Phelps and the Patapsco Female Institute, 1841-1856. Ph.D. diss., University of Maryland at College Park, 1990.
Annotation / Notes: As director of Maryland's Patapsco Female Institute, Phelps expanded the role of women in the nineteenth century. Phelps believed that women were responsible for their own lives, not mere satellites of men. Thus, an equal education prepared women for economic self-support while remaining within the domestic sphere. Like Phelps, women could have a home, family, and career without challenging slavery, the domestic sphere, or patriarchal control.

Annotation / Notes: Like her male counterparts in the nineteenth century, Phelps became a self-made woman. She fulfilled the social expectations of true womanhood by being pious, compassionate, and nurturing in her roles as wife and mother. She also was a career educator who wrote textbooks, translated manuscripts, and later ran the Patapsco Female Institute. She went beyond what was expected of her and urged other women to do the same.
