Buchanan, Carrie M
Carrie Buchanan was the daughter of a Reverend, which undoubtedly influenced her life. She attended a seminary school in Ohio, something that was unusual for women of her time. After she completed her schooling, she traveled to Egypt and ran a school there for young women called The American Mission Girls' School at Luxor. Her work in Egypt attracted the attention of President Theodore Roosevelt, who visited her school. After her death, she became known as a "Benefactor of Egyptian Womanhood" by the students she taught in Luxor.
